Clermont Connections members clean banks of East Fork River

Clermont Connections, a young professionals group, spent a recent Saturday morning canoeing down the East Fork of the Little Miami in Batavia, Ohio.

During this River Sweep, sponsored by the Soil and Water Conservation District of Clermont County, members of CCYP collected bottles, cans, tires, hubcaps, and other trash along the banks of the river as well as from the water and islands.

At the end there were more than 15 tires ranging from toy tires to truck tires. The group also collected over 15 trash bags full of garbage and other materials cluttering the banks and river. This was a great opportunity to help the community, canoe along a beautiful river and have a great time with friends.
