The Great Sierra River Cleanup

Posted on 1st October 2014 by admin in Rivers of the world

Six Years of Cleaning up the Sierra

During the first six years of the Great Sierra River Cleanup, more than  23,000 volunteers have joined together to remove more than 600 tons of trash and recyclables from watersheds throughout the Sierra Nevada. Hundreds of community groups have spread across 22 counties and over 2,200 river miles to pull appliances, cigarette butts, beverage cans, baby diapers, tires, furniture, and more from the rivers and streams that supply the State of California with more than 60 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.
