Shasta Land Trust is hosting our 4th annual local river cleanup from 9:00am to noon on Saturday, September 15, 2012. Over 40 volunteers will remove trash and recyclables from Churn Creek, in east Redding. Volunteers will converge on Churn Creek and haul away tires, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, cigarette butts, various household items, and more from this important creek.
The event is part of the Great Sierra River Cleanup, which will take place on rivers throughout the Sierra and Cascade region and is in turn part of the California Coastal Cleanup Day. Coastal Cleanup Day is the largest volunteer event in the state, and Shasta Land Trust is pleased to be a part of this effort to restore health to waterways and water bodies, from “source to sea.” This is a great event for people of all ages, and families are encouraged to attend together. Groups such as Scouts, church groups, and school clubs are also welcome to volunteer.
All members of the public are invited to be a part of this local stewardship effort, and can get more information or sign up to volunteer by contacting Bridget Harrison at Shasta Land Trust at (530) 241-7886 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
