HERO USA is teaming up with Hashtag59 once again for another fun-tastic River Cleanup! Join us for a Clean Up along the Scioto River. Participants can join the HERO crew and Hashtag59 for a guided paddle through the heart of downtown Columbus and the award winning Scioto Mile in a kayak or canoe or paddle board. 

We will be concentrating on the Scioto Audubon peninsula and nature preserve to take in the lush summer colors and clean up our city! Participants can collect garbage and debris from their boats or choose to exit the water and clean up on shore around the dock area.

This is participation by choice, so participants only need to collect what they feel comfortable with. 

After the clean up concludes, all participants are invited to the volunteer appreciation party hosted at Gresso's which is just a few blocks away! Come enjoy some fantastic giveaways and a fundraising raffle with a couple of RIDICULOUS prizes including a stand up paddleboard! Sponsors include Pacifico, Cliffs Original, Enso Tattoo, Yoga on High and One 80 Out Supply.

As part of HERO USA'S community outreach program, Paddle in the City, we will be offering guided kayak and canoe paddles down one of the most scenic portions of the Olentangy and Scioto Rivers throughout the summer. All guides are certified instructors.
