For many years, the Commission sponsored the International Coastal Cleanup for the Lake Erie shore in Ohio. We are thrilled that there are now not one but two independent volunteer organizations that can take over this effort. Thanks to everyone who helped out over the years, and if you are interested in continuing, please follow these links: 

Spring and summer cleanups are available all along Ohio's coast! Please register directly with the Alliance for the Great Lakes at

If you are in the Toledo, Ohio area, you can register with Partners for Clean Streams at
