Join the MWCD Earth Day Challenge and Receive a FREE Night of Camping! – Will you take the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District’s Earth Day Cleanup challenge for a free night of camping? Learn about the details right here on Newsymom!

New Philadelphia, OH (April 11, 2023)— Earth Day is April 22, and the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) is celebrating with an Earth Day Cleanup Challenge.

“The MWCD lakes provide a destination for millions in our region to enjoy outdoor recreation,” says Adria Bergeron, Director of Marketing and Communications. “Keeping the water and shoreline clean is imperative for wildlife to thrive and the lakes beautiful. Earth Day serves as a reminder of our responsibility to care for nature and our environment and to engage with the community for their help. The MWCD Rangers and staff conduct cleanups year-round, not just on Earth Day.  We are inviting the public to get involved by attending an organized clean-up to earn a free night of camping, or clean-up on their own and enter to win a cooler full of goodies, as our way of saying thank you.”

Organized Cleanups at These Places:

Organized cleanups will be held at MWCD lakes on April 15 at Charles Mill, Clendening, Piedmont, and Pleasant Hill Lakes. Additional clean-ups will be held on April 22 at Atwood, Tappan, and Seneca Lakes. (Free camping coupons will be issued one per household.) The Cleanup Challenge is a great opportunity for groups to help with community projects and service. For groups wishing to participate, please contact Ethan Zucal at 330-556-4814 or Cleanup details for each lake are available at

If you are unable to attend an organized clean-up, walkers, hikers, and boaters are encouraged to grab a pair of gloves and a trash bag to pick up litter between Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 23. Post photos of your cleanup to an MWCD Facebook or Instagram page using #MWCDEarthDay2023 and be entered into a drawing for a cooler filled with prizes and a gift certificate.
