Great Sierra River Cleanup
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. With your help this year can be 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. Trash will be removed 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.
Please register with Claire at [email protected] and come out to this year’s cleanup to help keep litter out of our Eastside waterways.
Thank you to all partners including the California Coastal Commission, Inyo 350, LADWP, the Sierra Club Range of Light Group, and Friends of the Inyo.
