2022 Clark Fork River Cleanup

Our annual Clark Fork River Cleanup was a huge success thanks to you! Covering over 180 miles of river and collecting mountains of trash, this river cleanup had an incredibly positive impact on the river’s health. You donned boots and gloves and gear, dug into the muck, braved thorns and weeds and weather, and together collected trash before it could be swept away by spring runoff.

Whether you joined a cleanup crew of 50, or were a river hero team of one, know that you made a big difference for the Clark Fork watershed, and we are extremely grateful.
