Cleanup Results & Photos

Thank you to our entire community of river volunteers for helping make the 2019 Cleanup a success. We couldn’t remove 32,500 pounds of trash and recycling from 84 miles miles of the Yuba and Bear watersheds without the help of more than 900 dedicated volunteers.

And we couldn’t depict all their amazing work and ventures through the 33 Cleanup sites without the help of our brilliant volunteer photographers. Thank you to Bob White, Adam Dunn and Geri Stout.
