As part of the Russian Riverkeeper Annual Russian River Cleanup, The Redwood Empire Chapter of Trout Unlimited (RETU) invites you to participate in a river cleanup day on September 16. After this winter's rains and a lot of summer use, there is alot of debris in the water that needs to be hauled out. To do the cleanup, we will be working approximately a mile upriver and downriver from Alexander Valley Campground on the Russian River in Healdsburg.
We need people with rafts, canoes and Driftboats - the campground has parking a boatlaunch. We also need people willing to be paddlers, as well as volunteers to work the ground and wading.Volunteers signing up to paddle/float must be experienced paddlers, able to swim, and 18 or over.Russian Riverkeeper has graciously offered to provide bags, pickers, gloves, and snacks, and will come remove the trash off the beach for you later that day.
All volunteers should bring a hat, sunscreen, water and a change of clothes.
Upon registration, we will be in touch with any additional pertinent details for the day. Please join us - see you on the water!
