Friends of Plumas Wilderness, in partnership with Sierra Nevada Alliance, Mt. Hough Ranger District and Plumas Corp, is hosting the annual Great Sierra River Cleanup from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, at Red Bridge Campground on the Middle Fork Feather River.
Volunteers will gather to haul away cigarette butts, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, party remains, pet waste, and more.
The work day begins with meeting at 8 a.m. at the Friends of Plumas Wilderness office (546 Lawrence St., Quincy) for coffee and a safety briefing before carpooling at 9 a.m. to Red Bridge Campground. Cleanup begins at 10 a.m. Afterwards Friends of Plumas Wilderness will provide volunteers with lunch. Cleanup supplies and personal protective equipment will be provided.
“We hope to attract dozens of volunteers for a fun and worthwhile day cleaning up our important and scenic local waterway,” said Aubrey Pickerell, a spokesperson for the organization.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup is part of the California-wide Coastal Cleanup Day, the single largest statewide annual volunteer effort. Interested volunteers can visit plumaswilderness.org/connect/events-outings/great-sierra-river-clean-up/ for more information.
