188_nathan_woods_junk_in_jonboat_1.jpgWould you like to help make a difference in a river near you? Have a site you'd like to see get cleaned up? Let us know!

Garbage, paper, plastic, scrap metal, wood, furniture, electronics, appliances, and tires can be cleaned up with a group of dedicated volunteers armed with buckets, gloves, waders, canoes, trucks and trash bags!
