September 15: Great Sierra River Cleanup - North Fork American River
Saturday September 15 is the fourth annual Great Sierra River Cleanup. This cleanup, coordinated by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy in partnership with the California Coastal Cleanup Day, serves to promote good stewardship on all our waterways, from the source to the sea. The North Fork American River Alliance will support this effort with two volunteer cleanups
of trash sites on the Wild and Scenic North Fork American River. Both cleanups will require a hike down into the canyon to the river and then the strenuous hike back out on steep trails.
One cleanup will take place at Euchre Bar. We will meet at 9 am at the Iron Point trailhead for the 1.5 mile hike down to Euchre Bar. We will have time for snack/lunch and swim before loading up with trash from the bridge site for the 1.5 mile hike back up to Iron Point. We should be back to Iron Point by 2 pm. For more information contact Ron Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org
(preferred) or (530) 878-9232.
The second cleanup will be in Green Valley. We will meet at 10 am at the Green Valley trailhead parking area on Moody Ridge. It is a little less than a 3 mile hike down to the river in Green Valley. There we will have time for lunch and a swim before cleaning up some of the campsites in Green Valley. We will haul whatever amount of trash we can from the campsites back up the steep trail. The plan is to be back up on top of the canyon around 4 pm. For more information contact Gay Wiseman at email@example.com
