WHAT: A fun and productive day of cleaning along the banks of the Mokelumne River! River cleanups improve the
of rivers and streams, help in identifying negative impacts to the waterway, and educate participants about the value of watersheds for recreation, fish and wildlife habitat, along with developing a “river community” – all while having fun!
Organized groups are welcome at all sites!
