Susquehanna River Cleanup Project - Call for Volunteers

— SUNBURY — The Susquehanna River Cleanup Project (SRCP) is gearing up for its spring cleanup along the banks of the Susquehanna River and is in need of volunteers. The cleanup will take place May 3, with volunteers meeting at the Sunbury Amphitheater and cleanup spanning from Sunbury to Lewisburg. There are various volunteer opportunities available this year, including trash pick-up, river guides, boaters, group leaders and musicians. A celebration concert will be held at the Sunbury Riverfront Amphitheater following the cleanup at 3 p.m. and will be free and open to the public.

Last year, over 100 volunteers took part in the cleanup and helped to collect a total of 6,000 pounds of garbage, most of which was recycled.

If you or your group is interested in volunteering or being a sponsor for this year’s cleanup on May 3, visit the website For more information on SRCP, contact Zach Stotter at (570) 809-0591 or email
