Trash Free River Cleanups

Since September 2020, Save The River has successfully planned and executed Trash Free River shoreline cleanups along the St. Lawrence River. This program has been cleaning up the shoreline and boat slips for several years on both sides of the River in an ongoing effort to make the St. Lawrence River “swimmable, fishable, and drinkable now and for generations to come.”

These cleanups are:

  • – Community-based
  • – Volunteer oriented
  • – Focused on the shore, wetlands along the shoreline,
  •   and 10 feet into the River

Our cleanup efforts are made possible thanks to the Leonard C. & Mildred F. Ferguson Foundation, Labatt USA, #TeamSeas, Project C by National Grid, Community Bank, N.A., and the Northern New York Community Foundation.
