2013 Great American River Day Cleanup & Beautification Project


In partnership with Friends of the Crooked River, the Summit Soil & Water Conservation District, and Keep America Beautiful, the City of Cuyahoga Falls is coordinating a River Day Cleanup & Beautification Project on Saturday, May 18th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Volunteers will be cleaning up litter on public grounds throughout the community and along the Cuyahoga River, pulling invasive garlic mustard plants in Water Works Park, and planting flowers at park shelters.

There are numerous public grounds areas throughout the community that are in need of litter cleanup. Any litter that is not picked up can eventually find its way into local streams and the beautiful Cuyahoga River and negatively impact water quality.  Volunteers may choose a public park or other public grounds site to clean up, as well as clean up litter along the river.

Lunch, cleanup and planting supplies will be provided for volunteers.  Individuals, families and groups are welcome. Volunteers are urged to register by Friday, May 17th, and should plan to meet at 10 AM at the Little Stone Shelter in Water Works Park on Saturday, May 18th for a brief safety meeting prior to cleanup and beautification work.

For more information, please contact Becky McCleary at 330.971.8201, or email
