Join a River Clean-up Crew!

We need busy people who love to get things done!

The strength of our organization is in a solid group of volunteers who help with a wide variety of activities. Some enjoy getting dirty in the river, others like to put on nice events. Whatever floats your boat, we appreciate all sorts of volunteer time and energy.
