River Clean-Up & Environmental Expo
Saturday, September 19, 2015 – Come help clean a portion of the Santa Clara River… the longest free-flowing river and one of the last two natural river systems remaining in Southern California. Be a part of the solution for a better environment by helping to preserve the river’s natural beauty and variety of wildlife. To date, thousands of volunteers have collected over 396,000 pounds of trash and debris from the Santa Clara River and its tributaries! Pre-Registration will be required again this year but we have a convenient, web-based volunteer registration system. You will need to create an account first. Please note that we have switched to the City’s Rec1 system for the volunteer registration. If you have signed up for City Recreation classes, you may already have an account.
This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for scout troops, youth groups, and the entire family! Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes (NO SANDALS), appropriate clothing for walking in the riverbed, sunscreen, and a hat. Participants will be provided with gloves, collection bags, and refreshments. Carpooling, walking, or biking are highly encouraged as parking space is limited. Sorry, but NO PETS allowed. Visit the Environmental Expo to learn about recycling, air quality, pollution prevention, water quality, open space preservation, wildlife conservation, and much more!
