Education & Advocacy

Iowa Project AWARE does more than our annual river cleanup. We promote educational opportunities and cleanup efforts throughout the state.

Education Programs

Join us during Iowa Project AWARE for a variety of educational programs. Whether or not you’re joining us for the cleanup this year, you’re welcome to attend our programs. We bring in experts on a variety of topics, including environment, conservation, local culture and history, and more. Education programs are free for volunteers and the community.


Review the list of other river cleanups in Iowa. While AWARE is only once a year, other cleanup opportunities can be found throughout the state. Do you organize a river cleanup in Iowa? Submit your event information and let us know about your cleanup.
