Clean Sweep activities can include picking up litter and brush on locks grounds, beautification of nearby parks and picnic areas, and preparing sections of Canalway Trail for the thousands of visitors who arrive each year. However you decide to participate, your efforts will enhance this tremendous environmental, cultural and historic resource in preparation for the 191st consecutive navigation season.


Don’t see an event near you…… 
There’s still time to organize your own cleanup event.
