United States : Reclamation Invites Volunteers to Participate in the Great Sierra River Cleanup at New Melones Lake on Sept. 17, 2016.
On Saturday, September 17, the Bureau of Reclamations Central California Area Office is partnering with the Tuolumne County Land Trust, Tuolumne Resource Conservation District, Master Gardeners, and New Melones Lake Marina to hold the 2016 Great Sierra River Cleanup (GSRC) in Tuolumne and Calaveras counties. The cleanup will focus on sites around New Melones Lake in the Stanislaus River watershed as declining water levels expose trash and debris.
Cleanup sites will be located in the Glory Hole and Tuttletown Recreation Areas, New Melones Lake Marina, and the Parrotts Ferry Area. Maps will be provided for these locations upon check-in, and volunteers will need to provide their own transportation. Volunteers should dress for the summer heat; bring snacks and water; wear a hat, sunscreen and sturdy shoes; and bring work gloves and trash grabbers, if possible. Participants requiring special accommodations should contact Reclamation as far in advance as possible.
