RCWA – American River Cleanup w/ Wyane @ Ethan Way River Access

This River City Waterway Alliance cleanup will be co-hosted by Wayne Watts, a long time American River Parkway hero. In fact, Wayne recently received a Certificate of Recognition from Assemblymember Kevin McCarty’s office for his amazing 38 years of dedicated stewardship to the parkway.
We will be meeting at a new location, at the end of Ethan Way near the RV Park behind Cal Expo Gate 12 at the end of Ethan Way. We will park nearby and hike to the riverfront camps.
Wayne needs help cleaning some of the trashiest areas of his adopted section, mostly left by abandoned encampments and trashy recreationists. We will be removing as much abandoned trash as possible before this area floods and all the trash is swept into the American River.
This is a relaxed to challenging level cleanup with plenty of easy areas nearby. There will also be lots of climbing down steep riverbanks and hauling trash up with ropes. Something for everyone in this beautiful section of the river. RCWA will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footwear, grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available.
As with all events shared on RCWA, participation is performed solely at your own risk. Please place safety FIRST and do only what you feel comfortable doing. Moreover, participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver form if they have not done so previously.
Overall, be safe, have fun and get some “Exercise with a Purpose”!
Thank you!💚
