2017 Spring Litter Clean-Up is Saturday, April 22

Winning t-shirt design entry by Jenna Bellonby, Milford High School

Planning for the 2017 Spring Litter Clean-Up is in full swing and communities across Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River watershed are preparing to host groups of volunteers on Saturday, April 22, to help spruce up our local streams, lakes and parkland areas.

Earlier this year, the 3rd annual T-shirt Design Contest kick-started the event planning and over 181 students submitted designs to be included on the 2017 event t-shirt. This year’s winner is Jenna Bellonby, a 10th grader at Milford High School – congratulations, Jenna!

The Spring Litter Clean-Up is a combination of two events that have proved successful for more than 20 years in Clermont County – the East Fork River Sweep and Clermont Clean & Green events. This year’s event will be held 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 22nd, in various communities across the county and watershed.

Volunteers are needed! You can register individually, organize a school/scout group, or bring some neighborhood friends, to participate in this fun, worthwhile event! Protective gloves and trash bags will be provided. All volunteers will be given a picnic lunch and event t-shirt as a thank you for helping out. You can register online at: www.springlittercleanup.com.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to our event sponsors – the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR), the Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Duke Energy Foundation, and Lykins Energy Solutions.

We hope to see you on April 22nd!
