The East Fork Watershed Collaborative and Valley View Foundation are pleased to report that the 2016 Spring Litter Clean-Up for Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River watershed was another great success! The event attracted 545 volunteers to clean up 13 sites across Clermont County and the East Fork, including 10 miles of riverbank and lake shoreline! Volunteers collectively cleared approximately six tons of trash and contributed over 1,462 hours of community service.
We truly appreciate the support from our event sponsors: the Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors. The event was also supported with materials from Keep America Beautiful and with a Community Litter Grant provided by Ohio EPA.
Thank you also to our partnering agencies and organizations, including the Clermont Office of Environmental Quality, Clermont County Park District, Clermont Office of Public Information, Ohio State University Extension, Ohio Department of Natural Resources-Divisions of Parks and Watercraft, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and the Friends of Stonelick State Park.
