Thank you for your interest in joining us on April 23, 2022 for the 26th Annual Watershed Cleanup Day. Registration for the event is now closed as we finalize schedules and prepare materials for cleanup sites. If you are interested in making a difference in the cleanup but have not signed up to volunteer, we encourage you to pick up trash and litter in your neighborhood and dispose of it with your weekly household garbage. Every little bit counts!


This year's event will take place on April 23, 2022  from 8 am - noon. Please contact us with any questions via email or phone at: sarah@clearwaterconservancy.org / 814-237-0400.

Since 1997, volunteers have prevented more than 6 million pounds of trash from entering our local waterways! Thank you for keeping Central Pennsylvania clean and beautiful!
