Get the Lead Out

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

GLO 2019 VolunteersAlthough heavy rain events and unusually high water levels made normal scheduling of Get the Lead Out events difficult, a GLO was finally held in late August. In one evening, the Toledo ZooTeens and other community members removed 28 pounds of lead, lines, and lures, and 55 pounds of trash from the banks of the Maumee River! We are hoping for more accessible streams banks and beds in 2020 so that we can continue to remove fishing related debris from our rivers and streams.
