Great American River Clean Up 2017

2017 ARPF Fall Clean Up

Hosted by American River Parkway Foundation

Saturday, September 16 at 9 AM – 12 PM
Gristmill Access Parking Lot

Each year, the Parkway Foundation facilitates two large-scale, Parkway-wide Clean Ups and monthly, site-specific Clean Ups. Spanning all reaches of the Parkway, Clean Ups remove mass amounts of debris from the Parkway in just a few hours. Removing debris makes the Parkway a more enjoyable and safe space, helps protect the river eco-system, and improves water quality.

BRECA is sponsoring the Clean up starting at Gristmill Access. You can sign up the day of the event or register online.
