May 4, 2013 at 10:00 am - Second Annual Spring Cleanup
See photos & other media from this event here. Volunteers gathered to skim the banks of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River from the Chillisquaque Access Area & Boat Ramp in Milton to the Sunbury Waterfront, and collected 960 lbs of scrap metal (which was then recycled), 1500 lbs. of recycled materials, 2200 lbs. of waste (non recyclables), and 30 tires (also recycled). That's two and a half tons of materials removed from the river! This landmark cleanup was followed by lunch and a concert at the Sunbury Amphitheater with the following bands: Beardog, Emmy & Dylan Whitehill, Monkey & The Engineers, Bruce Barr, and Burgess, Mitchell & Seal.
May 10, 2014 at 9:00 am - Third Annual Spring Cleanup and Concert
See photos & other media from this event here. Over 90 volunteers got together to comb the banks of the Susquehanna River, exceeding the weight of garbage, recyclables, and tires found during the 2013 cleanup (more than 6,000 pounds total). Volunteers found bottles, tires, lawn chairs, truck batteries and even an old refrigerator. Two pontoon boats served as “garbage barges” and helped to transport larger items. Registration began at the Sunbury Amphitheater and groups of volunteers branched off to different sections of the river, spanning from Sunbury to just south of Lewisburg. This landmark cleanup was followed by lunch and a concert at the Sunbury Ice Skating Rink with the following bands: Karen Nogle & Mark Tomeo, Monkey & The Engineers, and Earl Pickens.

Volunteers found a vehicle, a shopping car, an electric guitar, and yet another old refrigerator. A pontoon boat and numerous motor boats served as “garbage barges” and helped to transport larger items. Registration began at the Sunbury Boat Launch, and groups of volunteers branched off to different sections of the river, spanning from Sunbury to just south of Lewisburg.
