50 Days of Cleanups for the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!

2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and we are celebrating by hosting 50 Days of Cleanups!

April 17th, 2020 Update:

The SC Governor has lifted restrictions on public access to our local waterways; however groups of 3 or more are still restricted.

See the Executive Order here>>

Our understanding is that as long as the public landing is open, 1 or 2 people can access the parking lot and adjacent areas to cleanup litter.

Questions? Contact us>>

April 1st Update:

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are canceling our 50 Days of Cleanups and subsequent events. Governor McMaster has passed an executive order to close public access to our waterways. This means the boat ramps and landings are closed. Both the landings and the parking lots are closed to the public.
That being said, cleanups are an excellent way to get outside, get some fresh air, and do some good for our waterways. Any litter can eventually end up in our waterways. Any piece of litter we can collect will help protect our rivers. If you can do an individual or small group cleanup without violating any restrictions, please report your results (scroll down for the link).

From March 3rd through April 21st, we will host all the cleanups we can manage. We will celebrate our hard work on April 22nd – Earth Day! – with our Cleanup Awards event!

Join more than 1 billion Earth Day stewards and help us celebrate by joining a cleanup near you!
