River cleanup in Susanville area
Susanville-area residents, including BLM employees joined the statewide Great Sierra River Cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 25, pulling together to remove nearly a ton of trash from the Susan River and a tributary, Paiute Creek. Debris ranged from soda cups and wrappers to shopping carts and a tractor tire.
The second annual Great Sierra River Cleanup is coordinated by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. This year, an estimated 4,500 volunteers collected approximately 150 tons of trash, appliances, car parts and other debris at 125 sites including every Sierra watershed.
In Susanville, the event was hosted and organized by the Lassen Land and Trails Trust, a nonprofit organization that focuses on open space conservation. The LLTT is a long-standing BLM partner.
