The annual Great Sierra River Cleanup was held on Saturday with cleanup sites at Sycamore Island, Jensen River Ranch, and Riverbottom Park. We'd like to thank all of the volunteers who joined the cleanup effort, including those who were part of the following groups. 

  • Recreational Equipment Inc, Fresno 
  • Peace Lutheran Church 
  • Fresno State University 
  • Fresno City College 
  • Clovis Community College
  • Reyes Coca Cola 

In total, 100 volunteers came out and removed 1,560 pounds of trash from the Parkway.

Volunteers collected everyday trash items, including cigarette butts, beverage cans, food containers, and tires. Among the more unusual things found was a butane tank with a factory plate dated in 1942. 

The River Parkway Trust's cleanup activities took place in collaboration with the statewide Great Sierra River Cleanup to clean Sierra waterways. More than 700 volunteers helped remove 3.4 tons of trash at cleanup events held throughout the Sierra Nevada region.

Thank you again to all the volunteers who came out to make the 2019 Great Sierra River Cleanup a success!
