River Clean-Up & Environmental Expo
New this year! Bring a canned or boxed food item to donate to the SCV Food Pantry! The Food Pantry is located just down the street from the River Rally location and we would love to deliver a full barrel of food to them after the River Rally event.
Also, bring a reusable water bottle to help us cut waste!
2016 Location: Newhall Community Center at 22421 Market Street
Saturday, September 17, 2016 8:00am – 11:00am
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 410,000 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. 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, a hat, and bring a reusable water bottle to help us cut down on plastic bottle waste. Participants will be provided with gloves, collection bags, and refreshments. Carpooling, walking, or biking are highly encouraged as parking space is limited. There will be a FREE bike valet and the bike trail runs right along the event location! 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! For more information, call the River Rally Hotline at (661) 284-1415 or email email@example.com.
