Great Sierra Rivers Cleanup Day Saturday, Sept. 15th


Join Revive the San Joaquin this Saturday in celebration of the Great Sierra Rivers Cleanup Day at Riverbottom Park. Help us clean up this local treasure and create a safe and enjoyable place to recreate on the San Joaquin River.

During the first three years of the Great Sierra River Cleanup more than 11,200 volunteers have joined together to remove over 526 tons of trash and recyclables from watersheds throughout the Sierra Nevada. Hundreds of community groups have spread across 22 counties and 1,052 river miles to pull appliances, cigarette butts, beverage cans, baby diapers, tires, furniture, and more from the rivers and streams that supply the State of California with 65 percent of its water. This effort, in partnership with the California Coastal Cleanup Day, serves to promote good stewardship on all of our waterways, from the source to the sea.

Meet at 9:00am at the entrance to Riverbottom Park. From the intersection of Herndon and Milburn, head north on Milburn to Alluvial, turn west on Alluvial and drive to the bend in the road. Turn left on Sante Fe then another left on Bluff Avenue. Park on the road and walk down near the BNSF train trestle to the river.  For more info and reservations call Chris Acree at 559-226-0733.
