River Sweep 2013 has been scheduled for Saturday, June 15, along the shoreline of the Ohio River and its many tributaries. Volunteers are needed for this massive event.
River Sweep is a riverbank cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River and beyond. More than 3,000 miles of shoreline will be combed for trash and debris. This is the largest environmental event of its kind and encompasses six states.
“We are so proud of the progress we have made cleaning up the Ohio River and some of its major tributaries but there is still work to be done,” said Jeanne Ison, Project Director. “The Ohio is such a great natural resource and provides so much to so many. We need your help.”
