 Without YOU, there’d still be 110.65+ tons of debris in & along the Black River.  

 Without YOU, countless people would not know that storm drains lead directly to our lakes & rivers.  

 Without YOU, adaptive paddling access & programming would not be available in Lorain County in 2019…  

 Please. Without you, we couldn’t be us.
