The Great Sierra River Cleanup takes place annually on the morning of the third Saturday in September.
Thousands of volunteers, representing dozens of community groups, wishing to participate in good stewardship of our rivers, lakes and streams attend.
This is the largest one-day volunteer event in California, when combined with the annual Coastal Cleanup Day.
During the first three years of the Great Sierra River Cleanup more than 11,200 volunteers joined together to remove more than526 tons of trash and recyclables from watersheds throughout the Sierra Nevada.
Hundreds of community groups have spread across 22 counties and1,052 river miles to remove appliances, cigarette butts, beverage cans, baby diapers, tires, furniture and other items from the rivers and streams that supply Californians 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.
