Volunteer to help the Russian River watershed...

Look for exciting opportunities with local organizations from around Sonoma County.


Join Russian Riverkeeper and Clean River Alliance to clean up the Russian River Watershed on September 15!

Beach walking or wading routes will generally run 8:30 am - 11:30 am. Boat routes will be longer, finishing up roughly around 3:00 pm. There are a number of locations from Monte Rio to Ukiah and signups are set up for the amount of trash at each location. If you find your local beach is already full that means another beach upstream might need more help. If your local beach is clean or your preferred location is booked, please consider an alternate site. Remember: it all goes downstream and on to the ocean so no matter where you volunteer you are helping the entire watershed and ocean. We also need volunteers to help with registration and set-up in Cloverdale, Healdsburg and Guerneville.

Thank you for joing us in ensuring the health of our river!

Note: ALL boaters need to be strong swimmers and paddlers. Life jackets are required.

WAIVER REQUIRED: To save time download and fill out your event waiver and bring to registration.
