Another Successful Year Fighting Dirty

The East Fork Watershed Collaborative and Valley View Foundation are pleased to report that the 2017 Spring Litter Clean-Up for Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River Watershed was a great success!  The event drew over 540 volunteers to clean up 14 sites and over 7 miles of riverbank and lake shoreline!  Volunteers collectively cleared nearly 3.5 tons of trash from our streams, lakes and parkland areas.

We truly appreciate the support from our event sponsors, including the Clermont County Visitors Bureau, Duke Energy Foundation, the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors, the Buckeye United Fly Fishers and Lykins Energy Solutions!

Thank you also to our partnering agencies and organizations, including the Clermont County Office of Environmental Quality, Clermont County Park District, Ohio State University Extension, Ohio     Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) – Division of Parks – Division of Watercraft, Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), Highland SWCD, Harsha Lake U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, and the East Fork Watershed Collaborative.
