Cuyahoga50: Anniversary Week


The Cuyahoga River caught fire for the last time on June 22, 1969. By then, it was already dead. Now, after fifty years, our river is once again teeming with life. Together, let’s celebrate our river and build our future. A future where, more than ever, we value clean water for all.

Take part in the largest series of clean water events in the country, June 19th through the 23rd. There’s something for everyone, with 25 events over 5 days.
