2021 marks the 25th Anniversary of ClearWater Conservancy's Watershed Cleanup Day! Did you know that since 1997, volunteers have prevented more than 6 million pounds of trash from entering our local waterways?!


Thank you for your interest in participating in Watershed Cleanup Day on April 24 (8 am- 12 pm). We have filled all of our sites as of 4/15/21, but we welcome you to sign up to cleanup around your neighborhood or area of your choice.  Please indicate your site or area you will be cleaning on the sign up form.  We can still provide supplies for you/your group, but you will be responsible for properly disposing of trash and debris using your own collection service. 



Contact us with any questions via email or phone at: adventure@clearwaterconservancy.org / 814-237-0400. Thank you for keeping Central Pennsylvania clean and beautiful!
