Russian River Cleanup
September 21, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
Join Russian Riverkeeper to clean up the Russian River Watershed! Go to http://russianrivercleanup.org/ to sign up and get involved.
The Cleanup will take place from Ukiah to Monte Rio and it’s also the same day as the California Coastal Cleanup. It’s easy to participate and we provide all the gloves, trash grabbers, and bags and volunteers will receive RRWCU T-Shirts and snacks. In addition to cleanup volunteers, we also need people to help with registration and a few others duties such as unloading trucks.
Registration is set up by check-in location where you’d like to participate. From each registration location, volunteers will be able to choose various beach walking routes based on where the trash is! At the registration you’ll get your gear, volunteer T-shirt, snacks and meet up with your crew leader and we’ll take a quick group shot and give everyone general instructions and then we’ll get to cleaning up our River!
The 2019 RR Cleanup will continue to remove debris from the February flood events as well as the litter from beachgoers before the winter rains wash them to the ocean. We can’t save the ocean unless we stop sending our trash downstream. You can help us break that cycle! Together we can stop adding to the great Pacific Garbage Patch in the middle of the ocean (it’s as big as Texas!).
We look forward to seeing you on September 21st for a cleaner Russian River and Pacific Ocean!
