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.

This year’s clean-up is brought to you by UC Cooperative Extension, the Tuolumne County Resource Conservation District and the Tuolumne County Land Trust. We will focus on sites around New Melones, as declining water levels reveal more and more trash.

The Great Sierra River Cleanup is about much more than picking up trash. It’s a time to come together with your families, your neighbors, your community, and your friends to accomplish something vital and worthy on behalf of our great Sierra rivers.

Participating in the Great Sierra River Cleanup is easy!   Join many of the volunteer groups—such as 4-H Clubs, Summerville High Ecology Club, Columbia College Natural Resources Club, UCCE Master Gardeners of Tuolumne County, UCCE California Naturalists Central Sierra—and demonstrate your passion for clean water in our local community.
