Volunteer for the Ohio River Sweep!

June 20, 2015 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

OhioRiverSweep

Since 1989, this award-winning cleanup for the Ohio River and its tributaries brings thousands of volunteers to the riverbanks to collect tons of trash and debris. River Sweep encompasses the entire length of the river, from its origin in Pittsburgh, PA to its end in Cairo, IL, including nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline and many tributaries.

More than 17,000 volunteers from public organizations, civic groups, recreational clubs, and the general public in six states bordering the river come together to collect more than 7,000 tons of trash and other debris from the banks of the Ohio River and tributaries.

There are 3 different meeting locations for Hamilton County:
Schmidt Boat Launch – 2944 Humbert Ave Cincinnati, OH 45226
Four Seasons Marina – 4609 Kellogg Ave Cincinnati, OH 45226 (Update: This location CANCELLED due to weather.)
