The Auburn Beautification Commission, Inc. is organizing volunteers to participate in the annual Owasco River Clean-up to be held on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2022 from 10 am through Noon.

Earth Day Schedule:

9:30 am – NEW this year the City of Auburn Department of Municipal Utilities will be on hand at the Mill Street Hydroelectric facility to provide a tour beginning at 9:30 am just prior to the clean-up activities. Stop by to learn more about the process to turn the river’s flow into energy.

10 am – Noon – Volunteers meet at the Mill Street Dam (Canal Street / Osborne Street side) to obtain bags and tools to assist with the clean-up of litter and debris along the banks of the Owasco River.

If you have a larger group that would like to sign-up to participate please e-mail info@beautifulauburn.org . Pre-registration is not required, however, if you have a large group pre-registering assists with making sure there will be enough tools and supplies for the volunteers.
