Spokane River Clean-Up

When: Sat., Sept. 19, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. 2015

Hundreds of volunteers are again expected to turn out for the 12th annual Spokane River Clean-Up to pick up garbage along the Spokane River gorge in west Spokane, and around Spokane’s downtown University District. Last year’s river clean-up was a success, with volunteers removing four tons of debris from around High Bridge Park. The event is open to individuals and groups of all sizes, but organizers request that all volunteers register online. Groups of 10 or more must send a representative to a team leader training on Sept. 14 at 5:30 pm at Mountain Gear’s Spokane Valley office. The river clean-up is a great opportunity for anyone to get together with friends and family to give back to Spokane’s defining natural landmark, the river.

Sat, Sept. 19, at 9 am • Free, register online • Selected sites include High Bridge Park and the U District • spokanerivercleanup.org
