    Organization: Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District

    The Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) and Valley View Foundation are pleased to coordinate the 2019 Spring Litter Clean-Up, scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2019 at various locations across Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River watershed.  The year's event will kick-off with a T-Shirt Design Contest for all local K-12 students!  Please see the registration page for more info and to register:  https://www.springlittercleanup.com/2019-t-shirt-design-contest.html.

    The Spring Litter Clean-Up is an annual volunteer event held in many communities across Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River Watershed.  Each year, volunteers come together to  enjoy the outdoors, while also doing their part to keep litter out of local parks, streams, and lakes.  Volunteers of all ages walk their neighborhoods or use canoes to collect litter to help keep our open spaces and waterways clean and safe.  It is inspiring to see so many people come together each to year to protect the treasures that make Clermont County and the East Fork watershed a special place. 

    This year's event is being sponsored sponsored by the Clermont County Convention & Visitor's Bureau, the Duke Energy Foundation, and the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors.  

    Event Background
    The East Fork Watershed Collaborative (EFWC) is a watershed group that was formed in 2001 to help communities restore and protect the East Fork Little Miami River watershed.  The East Fork Little Miami River is considered an exceptional water resource in Ohio and the EFWC works with partners in Clermont, Brown, Clinton and Highland counties to develop plans and projects to protect the river.  The EFWC includes representatives from local government agencies, community organizations, and residents.  Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is the lead agency for the EFWC.

    The Valley View Foundation (VVF) is a grassroots, nonprofit organization whose mission is to conserve land, preserve history and share it with the greater Cincinnati community.  In 2002, a group of citizens had the vision and dedication to save one of the last family farms in this area to serve as a nature preserve and education center.  Since that time, thousands of volunteer hours have made it possible for the VVF to establish permanent conservation of 190 acres along the East Fork Little Miami River, preserve local history, restore two historic barns, maintain five miles of trails, develop a thriving community garden and increase the number of visitors from local schools, scout troops, businesses and government leaders each year. 

    Other Important Event Partners includeClermont Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), Clermont Office of Environmental QualityClermont County Park DistrictOSU ExtensionOhio Department of Natural Resources State Parks and Division of Watercraft, Highland SWCDBrown SWCDClinton SWCD and many others.

    Organization: Civic Garden Center

    Many of Cincinnati's green spaces are overrun with invasive plants. As more and more ash trees come down, thinning our tree canopy, there is increasingly more room for invasive species (Japanese honeysuckle, Japanese knotweed, Garlic Mustard) to take over and exclude our native plants and animals.Therefore, we are kicking off this reforestation project to save and protect Cincinnati's green spaces.

    The first space we're focusing on is Walnut Woods, a 10-acre property adjacent to Walnut Hills High School. We will be restoring it in collaboration with Walnut Hills High School, Cincinnati Parks, the Evanston Community and more. This will be an ongoing project, and we could use your help! Our next workday is:

    Saturday, March 16th:

    Invasive Removal Workday at Walnut Woods, located off of Sulsar at 3250 Victory Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45207 (Walnut Hills High School), from 9am-12pm.
