Volunteers welcome to participate in Trinity River clean up
REDDING, Calif. – Anyone interested in benefitting the health and beauty of the Trinity River is welcome to join the Bureau of Land Management and partners at a volunteer clean up, Saturday, June 25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those who wish to participate should register in advance at https://bit.ly/3u0zlrV.
Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the Douglas City Volunteer Fire Department, 96024 Steiner Flat Road (just south of the junction with State Route 299) in Douglas City. Participants will divide into teams that will either float the river or walk the riverbanks to remove as much trash and debris as they can find.
Event organizers will provide gloves, trash bags, safety equipment and instructions. Participants should wear work clothes, including close-toed shoes and bring their own water bottles. Those who plan to float must provide their own watercraft and personal flotation devices. Participants will use their own vehicles to access project locations, and those floating the river will be responsible for arranging their own shuttles. All participants will be treated to a barbecue lunch at the end of the day.
Event organizers include the BLM Redding Field Office, Trinity River Restoration Program, Trinity County Resource Conservation District and the Shasta Trinity National Forest. The project areas are along the BLM-managed Wild and Scenic stretch of the river.
Information and pre-registration information is available by calling the Trinity County RCD, 530-623-6004, ext. 214, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
