The next Mad River Clean Up will be held on Sunday, April 14th, 2019 from 9 am to Noon. Meet at the Logger Bar at 8:30 am. Coffee and bagels will be provided.
This Mad River clean up is generously sponsored by Humboldt Green Week and Northcoast Horticulture Supply. Humboldt Green Week is a manifestation of culture advancing the ideals of our community while building bridges, honoring the environment, supporting the local economy, and promoting music, art, and solutions through action.
The Conservation Committee’s goal is to organize safe and educational river clean-ups to work towards improving quality of life in the community. We encourage community members to volunteer their time to leave a direct and positive impact on their watershed. Community members will be able to see first-hand the trash littering their watershed and the impacts of cleaning it up. The Mad River is the source of drinking water for approximately 65% of Humboldt County’s population and is a symbol of health in our community. It also provides habitat for numerous natural communities.
Clean-up begins at 9 am. Please arrive 15 minutes early so that tools can be dispersed and clean-ups locations can be assigned. Gloves, bags, and buckets will be provided. Wear protective clothing and close toed shoes. Coffee and bagels will be available for volunteers at the Logger Bar.
Sponsors and donors are always welcome to participate in future Mad River Alliance clean ups to help us pay for clean up equipment; such as pick up sticks, gloves, and dumpster rentals needed for our dedicated group of volunteers. Your company will be recognized and thanked profusely in all social media for your generous donation. You donate and we’ll do all the work!
The more volunteers we can get to come, the bigger the dumpster we can get and the more trash we can grab and pull out of the watershed!
