Project Clean Stream

Welcome to Project Clean Stream 2023! All Spring PCS events will kick off on Friday, April 12, 2024. If you would like to volunteer, you can find a clean-up event near you in the list of events below! If you want to register and lead a clean-up site, please follow the steps below. Thank you for taking action and being part of the solution as we work together to improve our lands and waters.

Step 1: First, register as a user for the Chesapeake Network to receive a username. New users are approved every morning.
Step 2: Once approved, click “Submit a Post” and then select “Clean up Event” and fill in all the information. Please don’t forget to include if you need supplies! (trash bags or gloves in sizes S, M, L, XL)

Note: Anyone can become a site captain and organize a cleanup, as long as the cleanup is located in the Chesapeake Bay watershed! As a site captain, you will be responsible for picking up supplies (if needed).
