We will meet at the parking area for Conestoga Greenway Trail at 9:00am. We will clean up the river edge of this trail as well as the river bottom. This trail is about 1 mile long.

This clean up is good for families and their friends

The parking lot that we will use is just off Broad Street Lancaster, PA. This link will get you directions from your location to the place to be.

The weather is going to be great for a fun event, making this the place to be. Hope to see you there as we help the local waters that flow to the ocean.


Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The web site did not let me know you posted.

The depth is max 6-10'. This is a river and it is moving about .75 knot at the current time. There is no problem with diving the river at this time as we are in it on a regular basis. The river is nice and clear at the current time and the weather is looking great between now and then.

Tank Rentals can be gotten from Lancaster Scuba Center (717) 397-2822. They are on 201 Greenfield Road, Lancaster PA. If you know that you are coming let me know and I will have a tank on location for you.

There is no need for any special equipment. We have trash bags to gather small trash and will be assigning a few people to watch the diver to bring up the tires and any other large trash.

Look forward to seeing you there.
