Annual Clean Sweep of the Great Miami River

Join in the Fun & Make a Difference

Get wet, get dirty, get in the river while helping clean trash from the Great Miami River and its banks!

Join us at the next Clean Sweep.Date/Time & Location

Join the annual Clean Sweep of the Great Miami River on Saturday, July 26, 2014 beginning at 8:00 a.m. with a snack, safety orientation, and canoe briefing at the DeGraff Lions Park on Pleasant Street.   

The rain date in case the river is not navigable is August 2, 2014.

Schedule

Teams set out by 8:15 a.m. in vehicles to specific locations along the river to canoe and clean the banks of the river on two to four mile sections, loading trash and debris into the canoes.  Some sections require walking in the shallow water while pulling the canoe.

Because the sections are limited in length, most groups are finished and back at the gathering place by noon getting cleaned up and ready for lunch.

Lunch & a T-Shirt Included

A great lunch is served in the park in DeGraf where all participants receive a colorful T-shirt.

We Provide

We provide canoes, paddles, life jackets, water, food, and safety equipment. 

Who Can Participate?

All participants must be 14 years old and those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or group leader.

Groups and families are welcome; this is a great family activity.

WEATHER CONCERNS?

Conducting the Sweep is subject to good river and weather conditions. If flood waters, lightening, or drought conditions exist, the sweep will be postponed until the "alternate date", August 2, 2014. Save both dates. Call 599-1253 at dawn on the day of the event, for a final mesage on the Sweep occuring that day.
