Pennsylvania Sea Grant played an important role in increasing the number of organized cleanups for the Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania, a statewide community-improvement program held annually from March 1 to May 31. The number scheduled for Erie County before May 2 in 2015 rose to 11 after Pennsylvania Sea Grant created an News in Education (NIE) page published in the Erie Times-News to share information about the cleanup and recruit readers to add new sites.
