Feather River Watershed cleanup scheduled

Feather Publishing

The Great Sierra River Clean-up in the Feather River watershed is Saturday, Sept. 15. During the last two years, more than 200 local volunteers removed nearly 4,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from the Upper Feather River watershed.

A project of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, the Great Sierra River Clean-up coincides with the California Coastal Clean-up Day. The data gathered from both events helps establish trends and is used to make recommendations to the California Marine Debris Action Plan.

In Quincy, volunteers meet at 9 a.m. at Gansner Park. The event will take place along Spanish Creek and Boyle Creek. A thank-you picnic and drawing will follow at noon for all participants.

Feather River Coordinated Resource Management (CRM) is the local coordinator of the event. As part of the event CRM will also implement a stewardship project to install another pet waste station along the bike trail at Linden Street.

Two pet waste disposal stations were installed last year on Spanish Creek Road and along the bike path at Railway Street. The stations help keep pet waste out of creeks and encourage community members to be active, responsible pet owners and stewards of their watershed.

Feather River CRM is a partnership organization of 24 public and private sector groups that work collectively to improve watershed health in the upper Feather River watershed.

CRM has restored more than 44 miles of stream and 3,900 acres of riparian and meadow habitat, working with citizen monitors to collect stream data, supporting the sixth-grade Watercourse Program, and organizing community watershed stewardship events.

For more information, contact CRM Watershed Coordinator Gia Martynn at 283-3739 or email gia@plumascounty.org.
