This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


A volunteer trash clean-up event along the Hocking River within the Athens City limits. Participants will be in small groups to cover a selected section of the river. Participants are asked to wear ‘closed-toed’ shoes, dress for the weather, and the possibility of sun exposure and high grass. Gloves and trash bags will be provided and early registrants will get an event t-shirt. 

After the morning clean-up, participants are invited to join us in a free picnic-style lunch.

A signed release will also be required of all participants. On the registration page, please download and print the 2022 Ohio River Sweep Agreement to Participate / Waiver form and bring a signed copy to the event.
