14th Annual Spokane River clean up - September 16

Saturday, September 16, 2017

This September, The Lands Council is hosting the 14th Annual Spokane River Clean-Up on September 16th at 9:00 am. We will cover locations in Spokane Valley, the University District, the Downtown River Gorge area, and Riverside State Park.

Each year, hundreds of volunteers donate their time by picking up garbage and recyclable materials from our public lands along the Spokane River. Last year, over 600 volunteers removed over 4 tons of debris from Riverside State Park to High Bridge Park to the University District to Spokane Valley.

VOLUNTEER. Whether you’re a first-timer or an experienced picker-upper, you’re invited to join the fun! This event is a great way to give back to the community while beautifying our region’s most precious resource: the Spokane River.

You can register as a group or as an independent volunteer. If you register as a group, we’ll make sure you all work in the same clean-up area along with your other volunteers. If you register as an independent volunteer, we will give you an area where you can work along with other volunteers.

RECRUIT. Invite your friends, classmates, co-workers, or your favorite club.  Volunteers and groups from high schools, churches, and service clubs can volunteer!

TEAM LEADERS. If you have at least 10 volunteers in your group, one of you will attend our team leader training on Tuesday, September 12th at 6:00 pm at Mountain Gear’s Warehouse in Spokane Valley – click here for full details.
