The Mahoning River has battled decades of industrial pollution and is slowly making its way back to health. In order to help this river live again, we need dedicated people like you to support our cause. There are many ways you can help:

We offer education and recreation events throughout the year! Join us for a canoe / kayak trip on the Mahoning and for our annual Riverfest in June.

Join a Committee

Our committees are all-volunteer and help lead projects for the Friends Group. Contact us to help with our education initiatives, restoration, recreation, grants, or our communications work.


We are always searching for new ideas and enthusiasm to further our efforts to improve the river. If you’d like to help coordinate our activities, increase awareness for our group, or add your thoughts during our monthly meetings, let us know. We welcome your support through volunteering!
