Sacramento Picks It Up! – American River

01/06/2023 09:00 - 12:00

Location: Howe Ave Access to the American River

Time: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Difficulty Level: 2 – 3

Event Name: Howe Avenue Access River Cleanup


Howe Ave is one of the trashiest areas of the American River Parkway. Let’s clean it up. We have cleaned up the Woodlake area, we can do it here. It already looks a lot better than it did when we were last year thanks to river steward and SPIU member Michael Tscheu. He works hard cleaning miles on both sides of the river.

We will meet at the river access parking lot. We will have free parking passes for all volunteers. We have coordinated with Sac Co Regional Parks on several abandoned camps.

There is plenty of easy trash pickup while enjoying the river.

We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footwear, long sleeves and pants are recommended, grabbers, buckets and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available.
