23rd Annual Mill Creek Cleanup

All are welcome to participate in the land-based portion of the cleanup along the stream banks! For more information and to register, click on the link below.

Happy Earth Day!

Thank you to those who volunteered! Including the Mill Creek Yacht Club, employees of J.M. Smucker's, Procter & Gamble, Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District, and area residents. We picked the Mill Creek and surrounding banks and streets clean from Etter's Custom Golf Center in Evendale to Vorhees Park in Reading!
A big shout-out to Enerfab, who connected us with their very generous friends at West Chester Protective Gear, who in turn made a very generous donation of rough-and-tumble work gloves to the Council just in time for the 23rd Annual Cleanup by Canoe (and Land!) in Evendale, Reading and Lockland. We’re thrilled to be able to use these gloves over and over for our many volunteer events throughout the year and many years to come.
