If you’ve never participated in a waterway cleanup, sign up for a real eye-opener!  You’ll see first hand how contaminants find their way into our surface and ground waters and how you can have a direct impact on the health and beauty of one of Florida’s most vital natural resources.

ADOPT A RIVER cleanups offer volunteers the opportunity to work along the shorelines of rivers, creeks and lakes picking up trash, to paddle in canoes and kayaks removing debris from the water, or to man power boats to help ferry collected garbage back to the shore for sorting and recycling.

Cleanups usually last half a day and are usually scheduled on Saturday mornings so as not to tie you up all day.  You’ll be amazed at how much can be accomplished in one morning!

Check upcoming events to learn about the cleanups scheduled in your area or contact Current Problems to schedule a cleanup for your favorite waterway.

Adopt A River cleanups include the removal of exotics where appropriate. These invasive plants choke our waterways and threaten the health rivers, lakes and streams. Manual removal reduces the need for chemical treatment and safeguards against the potential loss of native plants, crustaceans, fish, and other wildlife.

Another great way you can help protect your favorite waterway is to adopt a portion of it!  Contact Current Problems and learn how.

Email us to have your name added to our volunteer list to receive notices of future cleanups and work days.

If you’re unable to join the ranks of the volunteers but want to help, become a member, sponsor or generous donor today!

Current Problems Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
funded by private donations, government grants and contracts.
