What is a Watershed Cleanup?

Each year hundreds of volunteers visit one of  50 or more sites throughout our watershed to remove garbage and debris. Our annual cleanup aims to build a sense of community and increase understanding of the environmental stewardship necessary to improve water quality in our region.

What do volunteers do?

Volunteers start the morning at their assigned sites to cleanup up garbage and debris. Then, at noon, volunteers are invited to join us at Pierce Park in Appleton for the annual Cleanup Picnic to enjoy lunch, music, bounce houses, costumed characters, and games – it’s fun for the whole family!

There are nearly 50 cleanup sites located along the Fox River, the Wolf River, Lake Butte des Morts, and Lake Winnebago.
