CleanScapes works with communities and citizens across Clinton and Lycoming Counties to identify sites for its annual series of clean-up events. Help us by reporting a site you know needs a visit from CleanScapes using our easy online form here.
CleanScapes volunteers typically tackle at least four clean-up projects each year. The CleanScapes Advisory Board and Project Director are working together with communities and citizens to identify project sites for 2020.
You can help us identify sites in need of our attention by using our simple REPORT A SITE form!
