Diventures and the Henry Doorly Zoo team up to help keep our lakes, rivers, and streams clean.


Omaha (June 17, 2022)Omaha Diventures is partnering with Henry Doorly Zoo and Keep Omaha Beautiful this summer to clean up Omaha area lakes, rivers, and streams.

Saturday, they began with Levi Carter Lake whose shore was cluttered with litter. Caitlin Leary, Henry Doorly’s Conservation Education Coordinator said, “This lake is one of the worst we have seen.  We’ve had to pull out mattresses and tires in the past.”

Both groups and families are encouraged to volunteer during cleanups. Each is given a checklist of various materials that may be found which could include anything from bottle caps to cigarette butts to pieces of plastic.  At the end of each event, the items are tallied and totaled.

At the end of the season, Leary hopes to display all the debris collected.  “That way people can see the real impact our cleanup had,” she said.
