Come join the fun!
National River Cleanup® is a key initiative for American Rivers. Since its inception in 1991, we have engaged more than 1.3 million volunteers who have participated in thousands of cleanups across the country, covering more than 261,000 miles of waterways and removing more than 32.5 million pounds of litter and debris.
