Spring Litter Clean-Up is April 13; still time to sign up!

The 2016 Spring Litter Clean-Up will be held Saturday, April 13, at locations throughout Clermont County. Most events will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. At this annual event, volunteers come together to enjoy the outdoors, while also doing their part to keep litter out of local parks, streams, and lakes. Volunteers of all ages walk their neighborhoods or use canoes to collect litter to help keep our open spaces and waterways clean and safe. We’re inspired to see so many people come together each to year to protect the treasures that make Clermont County and the East Fork watershed a special place!
