Each year, we hit the water in the spring to engage college students in the spring break experience of a lifetime. To date, we’ve worked with 2,105 college students from all over the country to remove over 1.4 million pounds of trash! 


In 2020, we will be working in Memphis, TN where students will traverse the river on foot and in boats while working closely with our crew and fellow students. Living Lands & Waters hosts several week-long cleanups (Monday through Thursday) where students have the opportunity to meet the infamous Chad Pregracke and his boisterous crew of river rats. During our 2019 program, 200 students rocked it and removed 116,855 pounds of garbage from the Mississippi River banks!!

2020 ASB Dates:

Week 1: March 8th – 13th

Week 2: March 15th – 20th

Week 3: March 22nd – 27th
