Event description

Description

Join us Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 8:00 AM - Noon as we tackle the litter and invasive vegetation that has become overgrown and reduces the visibility of the Sacramento River.

Creek Clean-Up 2017 will focus on the south side of the Sacramento River Trail, upstream from the trailhead on Court Street.

During these four short hours, hundreds of volunteers will gather to help clear the trash left on the trail and remove Himalayan Blackberry, Ailanthus, Pyracantha, Fruiting Mulberry, Mimosa, Acacia, and Black Locust.

The Shasta Trinity Fly Fishers will lead a river-based clean-up effort. Volunteers with jet boats will be on the water retrieving debris from areas not accessible by land.

Bring your water bottle, wear closed toe shoes, long pants, plenty of sunscreen, and come out and help restore the riparian habitat along the Sacramento River Trail. You can make a substantial contribution in the heart of Redding during a single morning of labor involving hundreds of your fellow citizens.

Gloves, safety goggles, buckets and garden tools will be made available for use. Please bring your own if you have them.

Refreshments sponsored by Shasta Association of REALTORS and Dutch Bros.
