Thanks to everyone that came out to volunteer for the Russian River Watershed Cleanup on September 16, 2017! It was a record year: We had 462 participants in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties, who collected over 27,000 pounds of refuse from the river! That averages to 58.5 pounds per person! Well done!
Next year’s Russian River Watershed Cleanup will be Saturday, September 15, 2018.
