Calling All Volunteers for the Great Sierra River Cleanup

Calling All Volunteers for the Great Sierra River Clean Up

September 20th, 9-12pm

South Lake Tahoe, Calif. – Next Saturday, September 20th from 9-12pm volunteers are invited to join Clean Tahoe, California Tahoe Conservancy, Keep Tahoe Blue, Sierra Nevada Alliance, and AmeriCorps to help remove litter from beaches to keep Lake Tahoe pristine.

The Great Sierra River Cleanup is the premier volunteer event focused on removing trash and restoring the health of waterways throughout the Sierra Nevada Region. This cleanup is an annual event coordinated by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and held in conjunction with California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Just three hours of volunteering with co-workers, family, neighbors and classmates makes a huge difference!  Last year, 122 volunteers from Tahoe communities picked up 1300 pounds of trash from beaches and streams all around the South Shore.  This year, there will be 10 clean up sites around the lake.

Site captains will provide cleanup bags, gloves, refreshments and raffle prizes. Volunteers are encouraged to RSVP and bring reusable water bottle, sunscreen, and friends.
