2017 Ohio River Sweep

On Saturday, June 17th thousands of volunteers from Pittsburgh, PA to Cairo, IL will do their part to clean up the 3,000 miles of Ohio River shoreline.

In Clermont County volunteers can report to

Chilo Lock #34 Park (rough terrain – adults or teens only!), Meldahl Lock & Dam, Moscow Riverfront Park at 222 Second Street, Neville,  Indian Mound Campground or the riverfront Bandstand in New Richmond.

The event starts at 9:00 am and ends around noon.  Volunteers will be asked to sign a waiver and will receive free t-shirts, gloves and trash bags.  There will be refreshments available after the event, with most communities hosting a cookout.  The Ohio River Sweep will be held rain or shine but canceled if the weather is dangerous (lightning, etc.).

Participants are asked to wear old, comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes.  If you have questions please contact Becky Ploucha, Valley View Foundation, at ors.clermont@gmail.com or at 513-218-4094.
