Plant a Native Tree

Pick Up Litter

It's not hard to organize a litter clean-up because it only takes 1 person to make it successful! (So social distance isn't a problem!) You can also contact Keep Columbus Beautiful for assistance with trash bags, gloves, or other tools needed. If you live in a municipality outside of Columbus, contact them directly!

You can learn more about litter & stream clean-ups with local non-profit watersheds groups like Friends of the Lower Olentangy (FLOW) or Friends of Alum Creek & Tributaries (FACT), who work tirelessly to keep our local watersheds clean, healthy, and safe for all to enjoy.

Be the Change for Clean Water

When it comes to protecting our water resources we all need to be part of the solution. Be The Change for Clean Water is bringing together ten counties and a multitude of partners to provide education, resources, and opportunities to make it easier for all Central Ohio residents to Be the Change for Clean Water.
