Spring Cleanup

April 22, 2023 All day


Milwaukee Riverkeeper provides the gloves, trash bags, and amazing FREE T-SHIRTS. YOU provide the people power to pick up the trash that finds its way into our beautiful river system. Together, we can help restore our waterways.


Saturday, April 22, 2023


More than 80 locations across the Milwaukee River Basin!


We’re doing our best to make our rivers healthy, so it’s important for us to also care for the health of our communities at the same time.  Be sure to wear gloves and sunscreen!  Wash your hands and don’t forget to bring a reusable water bottle, cleaning up is hard work!
