Every September, more than 3,000 people band together and descend on creeks, rivers, lakes and beaches across the state. Their goal? To remove tons of garbage from California’s waterways in the Great Sierra River Cleanup. Shasta Land Trust has been a part of the state-wide effort since its beginning in 2009. This year we’re carrying on the tradition, to keep the places we love clear of trash. The 2014 cleanup will focus on portions of Churn Creek and Boulder Creek where they run through downtown Redding.

We need as many people as possible to get their hands in the water during the cleanup, and there are plenty of other ways you can help with the event, too—from delivering lunch for volunteers to photographing the event or helping promote it in local media.

This is a kid-friendly event (children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult), so bring along friends and family!
