Eastern Sierra Land Trust and the California Coastal Cleanup initiative are
hosting the annual Great Sierra River Cleanup as part of California Coastal
Cleanup day on Saturday, September 17, from 8:30 am-11:30 am in Bishop.
During last year’s California Coastal Cleanup day, 36,289 volunteers came out
to 3,086 cleanups, 363,719 lbs. of trash and recyclables were removed, and
1,335 miles were cleaned. Let’s make this year even bigger!
ESLT will provide PPE, trash bags, trash grabbers, lunch and beverages.
Please wear long pants and sturdy footwear, bring a water bottle, and wear
sun protection. We will record what kinds of trash we find and how many trash
bags we fill through the Clean Swell App or paper forms.
Please register with Claire at [email protected] and come out to this year’s
cleanup to help keep litter out of our Eastside waterways. We will remove trash
along the Owens River near the Artesian Springs. Volunteers will meet at dirt
parking spots just south of the bridge over the Owens along East Line Street;
Thank you to all of our partners including the California Coastal Commission,
Inyo 350, LADWP, the Sierra Club Range of Light Group, and Friends of the
Inyo. You can find more information about this event at eslt.org/events.
