Centre County Watershed Cleanup Day April 22

Come celebrate Earth Day by taking part in ClearWater Conservancy’s 21st Annual Watershed Cleanup Day on April 22 from 8 a.m. to noon.
Individuals, families and groups will descend on sites throughout Centre County's watersheds to clean up trash and litter. A picnic to celebrate our volunteers will immediately follow the cleanup at Tussey Mountain in Boalsburg.
Since 1997, Watershed Cleanup Day volunteers have removed 5.8 million pounds of waste from local streams, roadways, sinkholes, and illegal dumpsites.  
Through a partnership with Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority, an army of citizen volunteers and the generosity of local contractors, heavy equipment operators, businesses, municipalities, Centre Region Parks and Recreation and the MS4 partners, Watershed Cleanup Day continues to have impact every year.
In 2016, over 500 volunteers helped to remove about 83 tons of trash from Centre County.
Please join your neighbors April 22 to help keep Centre County beautiful! To join the 2017 Cleanup as a group, family or individual, signup online at the Watershed Cleanup Day webpage.
