Licking County River Round Up

September 10, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Licking County River Round Up is a volunteer-driven, county-wide, annual clean up event in the Licking River Watershed, Licking County, Ohio. The River Round Up began as a Newark City Litter initiative in 1988 to clean up the Licking River. The annual river clean up brought out hundreds of volunteers who pulled tires, shopping carts and mountains of trash from an 18 mile stretch of the river. Through their efforts, a river that had all but been abandoned, has seen a rebirth of aquatic and bird life. Every year, we increase the number of volunteers that come out to participate in our annual event, the amount of trash pulled out of the river, and the mileage of river cleaned! Join us this year to do your part in keeping our waterways clean!
The Licking Park District leads paddle based sections of the Licking River.
