DIY River Clean Up – Summer 2022

August 1 @ 8:00 am - August 5 @ 5:00 pm

The UWM community, in its commitment to the well being of people and place in southeastern Wisconsin and beyond, will host a DIY River Clean Up this summer. Individuals and families are encouraged to participate, spending an hour or two exploring the banks of the Milwaukee River and collecting any garbage along the way sometime during the days that work best for them this summer. Supplies to participate in the event are available including latex gloves, garbage bags, and garbage pickers. Participants will be given supply pick up instructions once they register.

To make this event even more fun, and safe for your family, our partners at Milwaukee Riverkeeper have designed an app to keep track of the trash collected. Click here to register!

This event is co-sponsored by the UWM Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research and Milwaukee Riverkeeper. Please reach out with questions to Zack Garrity at zgarrity@uwm.edu and register below!
