One of the most beloved community events, the 9th Annual Spokane Spokane River Clean-Up is this Saturday, October 1st. We need team leaders and registrants. Last year over 800 people volunteered and the final count was nearly 6 tons of trash collected (11,982 pounds) of which 2 tons (4,092 pounds) was recycled.

You can sign up HERE and if you want to join me, sign up for team Down To Earth.
From Friends Of The Falls: Each year, the trash tallies grow as more and more folks show up and cover more and more areas along the Spokane River shoreline. A growing list of groups and organizations, like high schools, churches, whitewater groups, service clubs and others sign up too, each taking advantage of the Clean-Up as a way to give back to the community and beautify the river.
