GLOUSTER, Ohio — The Sunday Creek Watershed Group will host a stream cleanup June 15 as part of the 2013 Ohio River Sweep.

Participants should meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Glouster Memorial Park, off state Route 13.

Volunteers will remove litter and debris from Sunday Creek, a small tributary of a river.

All participants will receive a free Ohio River Sweep T-shirt. Volunteers should be prepared to get dirty and wet.
