The VWC invites you to join in on the 36th SLV Annual River & Road Clean Up and help in the effort to nurture our mountain habitat!
Since 1986, volunteers for the SLV Annual River & Road Clean Up days have removed tons of trash and recycling from our rivers and roads throughout the San Lorenzo Valley. You’d think our environment would be pristine after these many annual clean-ups! But every year trash accumulates back into our forests and streams, threatening wildlife, ecosystems, and the watershed. We are fortunate to partner with Save Our Shores, which monitors the clean-up efforts to influence policy and increase awareness of how humans impact our environment.
Students can earn Community Service hours! Wear good walking shoes and bring water and sunscreen. Site captains will provide suggested areas for clean-up and safety guidelines.
Sign in to get your bags and a snack from one of three sites, and bring back the trash collected (note: there is no piece of trash too big or too small) for proper recycling or disposal:
A Site Captain will be asked to:
