Conrad Park River Sweep

**BCCDKY & Boone County Parks are now sponsoring a cleanup at Giles Conrad Park! Come join us for a fun and ENERGETIC cleanup! Please wear appropriate clothing - tennis shoes, jeans, tshirt, bug spray, and sunscreen. You will likely get dirty with us, but we also highly encourage it. There will be a contest, so be sure to hang out with us until noon!

Since 1989, this award-winning cleanup for the Ohio River and its tributaries brings thousands of volunteers to the riverbanks to remove tons of trash and debris. River Sweep encompasses the entire length of the river, from its origin in Pittsburgh, PA to its end in Cairo, IL, including nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline and many tributaries.

The Ohio River Sweep is an event organized by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission, an interstate water pollution agency for the Ohio River Valley, along with environmental protection and natural resource agencies from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
