Spokane River Clean-Up

When: Sat., Sept. 16, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. 2017

Throw on your working-in-the-yard jeans and don’t forget some sunscreen and work gloves as you and your friends and family head out this Saturday to help keep one of the region’s most precious resources and landmarks in the pristine condition it should be. The 14th annual Spokane River Clean-up, organized by the Lands Council, will again see hundreds of volunteers gather on the river’s shores to pick up and haul away accumulated garbage and debris — last year’s event saw more than four tons of trash cleared by more than 600 volunteers. Areas being targeted this year include sites in Spokane Valley, the University District, Downtown Spokane and Riverside State Park. Volunteers can register individually to be assigned a site, or as a group, working alongside friends, family or colleagues.
