Another Foothill Conservancy Event - Mokelumne River Cleanup on October 19th

Hi

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Foothill Conservancy will be having a clean-up day on the Mokelumne River on Saturday, Oct 19th. I unfortunately will be at my high school reunion back in Fresno that day, so I will not be able to go. It seems my schedule never lines up with their events! One of these days it will work out. Here is the information below for anyone who is interested in going.
Annual Mokelumne River Cleanup
Saturday, October 19, 8:30 am to noon
Whether you have volunteered for the Mokelumne River cleanup before, or are coming for the first time, your efforts will help improve the water quality of our beloved Moke. Get first-hand experience in identifying harmful impacts to the Moke, and learn about the importance of the Moke's watershed for recreation and fish and wildlife habitats – all while having fun!
Two cleanup locations:
  • North Fork at Highway 26
  • Electra and Big Bar

BRING: Just bring your family, work gloves, canteen, sunscreen, and insect repellent. Sponsors will provide drinking water and trash bags. Wear good walking shoes/boots and a hat (long pants are recommended). Flotation devices are strongly recommended for children working close to the waters edge.
No pets or alcoholic beverages please.
INFORMATION: Event liability forms must be completed by all participants at sign-in; participants under 18 are welcome but must have liability forms completed by a parent or guardian. You will be contacted by a coordinator to confirm your registration. For further information, contact Randy Berg or call him at (209) 295-4900.
