All are invited to the 18th Annual Klamath River Clean Up on Saturday, April 20, 2019. The Yurok Tribe Environmental Program and the California Conservation Corps Watershed Stewards Program in Partnership with AmeriCorps-sponsored event is from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Klamath and Weitchpec.

Volunteers will remove litter and non-native plants from the banks of the beautiful Klamath River. Removing trash and non-native plants from this ecologically sensitive area will help benefit anadromous fish, such as salmon and steelhead, as well as the many mammals that live in the lower Klamath watershed. Volunteers will receive morning snacks and a delicious, traditionally cooked salmon lunch with homemade sides and a drink. In addition, all volunteers will receive a commemorative t-shirt from the Yurok Tribe Environmental Program and be entered for a chance to win raffle prizes.  

This legacy event has historically drawn more than 200 participants. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. in both Klamath and Weitchpec. The Yurok Tribe encourages all community members to come out for the 18th Annual Klamath River Clean Up.
