Planning for the 2016 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 23rd, to help spruce up our local streams, lakes and parkland areas. Earlier this year, the 2nd annual T-shirt Design Contest kick-started the event planning. Over 85 students submitted designs to be included on the 2016 t-shirt. This year’s winner is Karly Wrigglesworth, a 4th grader at New Richmond Elementary – congratulations, Karly (see photo on right)!
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 23rd, 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 check event locations and register online at: www.springlittercleanup.com.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to our event/contest sponsors - the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors and the Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
We hope to see you on April 23rd!
