Great American River Clean Up Slated for September 20th

The Great American River Clean Up takes places on Saturday, September 20th 2014 from 9am- 12pm.

In 2013, over 1,300 volunteers help remove nearly 16,000 pounds of trash from 23 locations.

The mission of the American River Parkway Foundation to support the preservation and enjoyment of the American River Parkway by fostering environmental education, stewardship and volunteer opportunities.

As a part of this mission they conduct the annual Great American River Clean Up. Participation in the Great American River Clean Up is a real contribution to the health of the Parkway and river.

Removing trash and debris prevents pollutants from entering the watershed, harming the wildlife, or creating hazards for recreational users. Additionally, keeping the Parkway clean protects ocean life by preventing trash from being washed downstream during the winter rains.

They need your support for this very worthy event.
