Russian River Cleanup after Flood seeks Volunteers UPDATE


Russian River Cleanup after Flood seeks Volunteers UPDATE

Help us clean up the lower reaches of the Russian River, the Estuary and the Coast at Jenner. The recent flood washed years worth of trash and debris off city streets sending it down storm drains, into our local creeks and depositing it into the Russian River where it's on its way out to the ocean. Let's stop the migration of trash before it washes up on our beaches or goes out to sea. Partnering with the annual Russian River Watershed Cleanup Committee and others, Russian Riverkeeper is mobilizing our local community members to take part in this post flood new years clean-up!
