Allegheny River Clean-up

Upcoming Clean-ups

Allegheny River Clean-up


The 10th Annual Allegheny River Clean-up will take place on five days between Saturday, September 8th and Saturday, September 15th.

Monday, September 10th will be a new type of clean-up adventure for us. Monday will be a targeted action day - No canoes on Monday! We will be targeting several large, historic dump sites. Volunteers will meet at Larimer Park in Russell at 8:30 am for sign in and a safety briefing. Then DRIVE to their designated clean-up areas. Bring gloves and digging tools.

Tuesday, Friday and Saturday we'll be on the Allegheny River - in canoes and kayaks.

Deadline to sign up to volunteer is Friday, August 31st. If you're interested in participating in one of Warren's "extreme cleaning events" first visit the FAQ page, and then head over to the Volunteer page to sign up!

(Note that some of the info on the FAQ page is intended for the autum river cleanups so, keep that in mind as you read it.)

Volunteers should bring:

  • Rain Gear-the cleanup will be completed rain or shine.
  • Layered Clothing-Individuals come prepared for a range of weather conditions, which can change rapidly in mid-May in northwestern Pennsylvania.
  • Food & Water-Individuals are responsible for bringing their own lunch and snacks. We will provide hot dogs, chips and beverages at the end of the day!

We look forward to another great time this year!
