Great Sierra River Cleanup
Join us on Saturday September 21, 2019 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Cove East for a cleanup followed by a beach picnic. Volunteers can meet at the Cove East trail (to the right of the entrance to the Keys Marina) to pick up trash on foot, or launch your kayaks behind Motel 6 and pick up litter on the river banks from the water.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup is a volunteer event focused on removing trash and restoring the health of waterways throughout the Sierra Nevada Region. This cleanup is an annual event coordinated by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and held in conjunction with California Coastal Cleanup Day to encourage good stewardship from the Sierra to the sea.
The Cleanup kicks off Sierra Nevada Watershed Protection Week which was established in 2015 to highlight the importance of the Sierra Nevada Region to the entire state. More than 60% of California's developed water supply originates in the Sierra Nevada and millions of visitors travel to the Sierra to hike, camp, and sightsee.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup is about much more than picking up trash. It's a day for Sierra communities - and those from all over California - to demonstrate their desire for clean water and healthy rivers.
