Surfrider will be participating with Canalway Partners in RiverSweep. This event is traditionally held in May, but due to the pandemic it has been rescheduled to September 12. This is a By Land and By Sea event.
We clean up to bring awareness to areas that will one day become a future trail and/or park. In 2019, 832 volunteers removed over 58 tons of trash, including 440 tires and went through 30 gallons of paint to cover up graffiti!
Over the course of 30 years 19,940 volunteers have helped us extract and recycle 24,757 illegally discarded tires and picked up for disposal 713 tons of trash.
You have the option to participate to pick up trash and debris along the river's edge and through the park area. If you wish to participate By Sea, please bring your SUP or kayak to launch from Merwin's Wharf docks. We will have on water support from PHASTAR and Port of Cleveland.
