Join us September 21 as we keep our waterways clean!

Help us keep the Owens Valley waterways clean - volunteer with ESLT for the Great Sierra River Cleanup!

Help us keep the beautiful Owens Valley waterways free of trash – volunteer to join ESLT at the Great Sierra River Cleanup on 9/21!

Did you know that over 20 million Californians get their water from the Sierra Nevada? Watersheds throughout the Sierra Nevada provide an integral component of our daily lives, whether it’s the water we drink, the food we eat, or the lakes and rivers we swim in. That’s why it is especially important to keep these watersheds clean and healthy – for our own well-being, and for the well-being of future generations.

Going on its fifth year, the Great Sierra River Cleanup is the largest volunteer effort in the state, and works in partnership with the California Coastal Cleanup Day. Over the past four years, this event has deployed more than 14,700 volunteers over 1,280 river miles in the Sierra Nevada range; together, they have removed 550 tons of trash and recyclables.

Eastern Sierra Land Trust looks forward to hosting the 2013 Great Sierra River Cleanup the morning of Saturday, September 21st in Bishop, in partnership with Cal Trout, the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and the Bishop Paiute Environmental Management office. We encourage you to volunteer and help keep our waterways clean!
