Throughout the Eastern Sierra, trash pollutes our rivers and streams, creating hazards for birds, fish, and other wildlife. On Saturday, September 16, we’re teaming up with other local organizations to make a difference – and we need volunteers like you to lend a hand.
We will be partnering with the Bishop Paiute Tribe Environmental Management Office, Friends of the Inyo, the Sierra Club, and people like you to help keep the Owens River healthy and beautiful. We hope you’ll join us as we “Team Up to Clean Up!”
GREAT SIERRA RIVER CLEANUP
Please note: volunteers should plan to meet at the Eastern Sierra Land Trust Office (250 N. Fowler St. in Bishop) at 8:30 am for coffee and a light breakfast. From there, we will carpool to our three separate cleanup locations.
This community-wide volunteer day takes place in conjunction with the 9th annual Great Sierra River Cleanup – a coordinated statewide effort to improve rivers and streams across the Sierra.
Organized by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, the Great Sierra River Cleanup is the premier volunteer event focused on removing trash and restoring the health of waterways throughout the region.
This effort, in partnership with California Coastal Cleanup Day, serves to promote good stewardship on all of our waterways – from the Sierra to the sea.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup is about much more than picking up trash. It’s a day for Sierra communities – and those from all over California – to demonstrate their desire for clean water and healthy rivers. It’s an opportunity to learn about California’s water source, and it’s a time to come together with families, neighbors, and friends to accomplish something vital and worthy on behalf of our great Sierra rivers.
