River City Waterway Alliance – American River Cleanup @ Northgate

Location: Camp Pollock


This will be a maintenance cleanup in the Northgate/Riverdale area of the parkway. These areas were all RCWA CLEAN this spring by volunteers helping stewards Deborah and Rick. We have completed 24 cleanup events removing over 120,000 pounds of trash. Please come out and help keep this area “sparkly clean”.
Parking is free at Camp Pollock and the cleanup sites are fairly close with mostly level terrain. These events will range from easy to difficult, with work for all levels, but is not suitable for children under 16. We will continue to work with Sacramento County Regional Parks to remove our piles.
Please come out and help with this project. We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footware, grabbers, buckets, gloves, and hats – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. Entry into the water is always optional.
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” as Bill Templin always says!
Thank you!💚
