Find A Cleanup Near You! 


Have you ever wanted to get out and be proactive abut your river's health? We, here at Friends of the River, share this passion. However, when we tried to "Google" California River Cleanups, nothing came up! So we did what any logical, river-enthusiast would do, we started a web page dedicated to garnering river cleanups and compiling them into a list, so you can get out there to help out your rivers!
 
Obviously, this page is still missing many cleanups and is a work in progress. If you know of any cleanups that are not listed, please, do not hesitate to shoot us an email at:  info@friendsoftheriver.org
