For five years running, the third Saturday of September has drawn thousands of volunteers to the Sierra Nevada for the largest volunteer event in the region—the Great Sierra River Cleanup, sponsored by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. This year, organizations across the region will coordinate local cleanups and spend 9 a.m. to noon on September 20th pulling trash out of our great river clean upSierra rivers, lakes, and streams— sources of drinking water for 23 million people in the state. If you would like to join this volunteer event that has collected nearly 600 tons of trash since its initiation in 2009, visit www.sierranevada.ca.gov and click on the Great Sierra River Cleanup link for more information!

  1. I didn’t even know there were river clean up organizations until last year and I’ve been noticing them all over the country now! This is a great thing to do to keep rivers clean for canoeing, kayaking, boating and fishing alike!
