Volunteering with POWW is fun and rewarding, but you are going to get wet and dirty. Here are some things to bring.
The Clean Sweep of The Great Miami River sweep is our main event of the year. We clean a section of river from Roadside Park in Sidney, Ohio to Bennett Elementary School in Piqua, Ohio. The POWW sweep is held anually on the third Saturday in July.
Volunteers are split up into 4 sections. Each of these sections has a captain, put in point, and a takeout point. The sweep begins at 8am and usually finishes around noon or 1pm. At the take out are cold drinks and lunch; usually locally donated pizzas, subs, and burgers, and a free event T-shirt. We could always use more volunteers, so if you want to help clean this wonderful local resource, sign up on our contact page.
