Volunteers Needed for River Cleanup Saturday, May 13

May 8, 2023

Originally slated for Earth Day, this spring’s river cleanup event was canceled due to high and dangerous waters. The good news is that our Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) has successfully locked in a new date—this Saturday, May 13, 2023. We are looking for volunteers to help clean up the Little Cuyahoga River from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm.

EnviroScience Volunteers Pose with Debris Removed from the Little Cuyahoga River

This is an employee-led tradition that EnviroScience has spearheaded since 2002—bringing ES employees, family members, loved ones, and community members together to remove trash from the Little Cuyahoga River and the Ohio & Erie Canal while raising awareness of the litter problem in our local streams.

This has always been a fun event, all ages are welcome, and we need all the help we can get! Here’s what you need to know:

Senior Environmental Scientist Yakuta Bhagat Removing an Old Tire from the Little Cuyahoga RiverWho: Anyone willing to help! We’ve had volunteers of all ages at this biannual event.

Where: Mustill Store, 57 West North Street, Akron, Ohio 44304 (Check-in at the tables)

What to Wear: Old clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet/dirty and waders or rubber boots if you have them. (We may have extra waders and rubber boots for those who don’t have them.)
