Date & Time: Saturday, September 19th @ 9AM
Meeting Location: Briceburg Recreation Area Parking Lot
The Great Sierra River Clean-up is a collaborative effort between Sierra Foothill Conservancy, Upper Merced Watershed Council, Bureau of Land Management, and the Kim Evans Memorial Clean Up. This is a one-day event held annually in September that brings the community together to help clean up our beloved watershed. Volunteers are needed to help! Let's make this a cleaner and safer river canyon for families to enjoy!
Each year participants remove over 2,000 pounds of trash and recyclable material from the Merced River. The Great Sierra River Clean Up is about much more than picking up trash, however. It’s a day for Sierra communities – and those from all over California – to demonstrate their desire for clean water and healthy rivers. Help restore the Merced River, which flows from Yosemite National Park to the Central Valley.
On the day of the cleanup, make sure to bring a hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, your friends and family, gloves (may be provided), water (may be provided) and a plastic bucket (optional). This year, we will be meeting at the Briceburg Recreation Area parking lot at 9AM. The event will conclude between noon and 1PM. Hope to see you there!
UMRWC has been committed to the protection and preservation of the Upper Merced River Watershed since its founding in 2001.
