Attention Russian River Watershed Stewards!

September 21 – 28, 2019 is Creek Week in the Russian River Watershed. During Creek Week, creek, river and ocean clean-up campaigns will take place throughout Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. The Russian River watershed consists of over 150 creeks which provide water supply, wildlife habitat, flood capacity and recreation. Unfortunately, trash and debris accumulation in local waterways impair water quality, wildlife habitat and, at times, recreation and flood capacity. This is a great opportunity to take part in activities that connect you with your community and environmental practices that help protect our creeks.

You can contribute to the health of the Russian River ecosystem by participating in one of the creek and river cleanup events listed below.

Please note: The following information is correct to the best of RRWA’s knowledge; please contact the appropriate agency or organization to confirm meeting times, locations, and to sign up.
