Help keep the banks and waters of the Spokane River clean, safe and healthy by signing up with family and friends to join hundreds of other volunteers at the 16th annual fall Spokane River Clean-up, organized by the local environmental nonprofit the Lands Council. Service clubs, church groups and schools are encouraged to join the clean-up efforts along with water recreationists and those who simply care about the health and aesthetics of the region’s iconic natural landmark. For this year’s event, teams will be collecting trash in areas of the Spokane Valley, the University District, Peaceful Valley, High Bridge Park and People’s Park. Make sure to sign up online in advance, and when you head out Saturday morning, dress to get dirty!
Sat, Sept. 14 from 9 am-noon • Free • Spokane; locations vary • spokanerivercleanup.org and facebook.com/SpokaneRiverCleanup
