Ohio River Sweep
The Ohio River is a great place to play but unfortunately the increased recreational use has produced more litter on the river banks.  Increased  litter makes clean up events like the Ohio River Sweep even more important!  On Saturday, June 20th 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, Ohio volunteers can report to Chilo Lock #34 Park (rough terrain – adults or teens only!), Moscow Riverfront Park at 222 Second Street, Neville – Indian Mound Campground or the riverfront Bandstand in New Richmond.  The event starts at 9am 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 cancelled if the weather is dangerous (lightening, 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.org or at 218-4094.
