Take care of the river you love.
In Missoula, people don’t just love their river. They’re passionate about treating it right. That’s why every April, hundreds of volunteers come together for the Clark Fork Coalition’s Annual River Cleanup — one of Missoula’s most popular volunteer events. Last year over 800 volunteers braved blustery wet weather to remove over 4 tons of trash from the river. Now that shows dedication from a community that loves its river!
This year, join us on April 18th to clean up the river, enjoy a free BBQ lunch, and enter a free raffle to win great prizes. The River Cleanup is from 10am to noon followed by a free BBQ lunch at Caras Park. Volunteers can start checking in at 9:30am at Caras Park and the day ends around 1pm – you can go home with a full belly and a full heart.
Interested in signing up a team or sponsoring the Cleanup this year? Contact Liz Murphy at 406-542-0539 x213 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out our online sponsor form.
We couldn’t do it without our amazing sponsors. Missoula businesses contribute in many different ways to the success of the Cleanup. Their support helps with supplies, food, prizes, and coupons volunteers, as well as recycling and garbage hauling for all of the trash removed from the river.
