WHAT Help prevent pollution in Lake Almanor or Indian Creek by joining the Lake Almanor Watershed Group and Sierra Institute for Community and Environment as they host the 10th annual Great Sierra River Cleanup. Come and be part of the solution by helping pick up trash and recyclables along the river. Meet your neighbors and friends and join us as we help protect the local environment.
WHY: The Great Sierra Cleanup will remove tons of trash that would otherwise flow down to the coast and end up at the beach. On its way, this trash pollutes our local creeks and rivers and threatens the health of wildlife and the environment.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup is about much more than picking up trash. It’s a day for Sierra communities – and those from all over California – to demonstrate their desire for clean water and healthy rivers.
It’s an opportunity to learn about California’s water source and it’s a time to come together with your families, your neighbors, your community, and your friends to accomplish something vital and worthy on behalf of our great Sierra rivers.
BACKGROUND: The Lake Almanor Watershed Group is a local volunteer group dedicated to monitoring and preserving the health of Lake Almanor and the surrounding landscape. The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment is non-profit based in Taylorsville working at the forefront of innovative natural resource management approaches that enhance the well-being and economic prosperity of rural communities.
