Clark Fork River Cleanup Aug. 26

| August 23, 2023 12:00 AM

The Eastern Sanders County Conservation District will host the annual Clark Fork River Cleanup on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Sanders County Fairgrounds in Plains.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers will need to check in at the fairgrounds and sign a liability waiver before clean up can begin.

Volunteers can then spread out from there, along the river banks. Water and garbage bags will be provided, but ESCD asks volunteers to bring their own gloves and other protective measures. Republic Services is donating a dumpster that will be at the fairgrounds parking lot for all trash that is collected.

After the cleanup, pizza will be provided.

Register for the event at easternsanderscd.org.
