Trout Unlimited, Sierra Business Council to host second Great Sierra River Cleanup

Trout Unlimited and the Sierra Business Council will hold the second annual Great Sierra River Cleanup on the Truckee River from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Last year more than 3,500 volunteers joined together to remove more than 130 tons of trash and recyclables from Sierra rivers during the first Great Sierra River Cleanup, organized by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.

More than 100 community groups spread across 22 counties and 500 river miles will pull appliances, cigarette butts, beverage cans, baby diapers, tires, furniture and more from the rivers and streams that supply the state of California with 65 percent of its water.
