September is Vermont's River Cleanup Month

Host: Watersheds United Vermont

Location: Statewide

Event Description:  For years, local watershed groups and other volunteers in Vermont have organized river cleanups to remove trash that has accumulated in our waterways. Trash in rivers and lakes not only creates an eyesore for paddlers and swimmers, but it also negatively impacts riparian wildlife and adds pollutants to our waters.

Watersheds United Vermont is helping to promote Vermont River Cleanup Month and to provide information and resources to help you run a successful cleanup. You can help volunteer with an existing cleanup or you can help organize your own. Click here to find a river cleanup near you!
