Volunteers are invited to celebrate National Public Lands Day and the Great Sierra River Cleanup by joining the Bureau of Land Management Eagle Lake Field Office and Lassen Land and Trails Trust on Saturday, September 16th, to clean up the Susan River.

Volunteer teams will clean up debris and litter in and around the river to beautify the Susan River Trail and improve habitat for migratory birds.

The BLM will provide bags and plastic gloves. Volunteers should bring gloves, hats, water, sunscreen and buckets, and wear clothing suitable for outdoor work.

Organizers will provide lunch for volunteers at noon at the Hobo Camp day use area.

“The BLM strives to be a good neighbor in the communities we serve and this is a great opportunity for area residents to join us and the Lassen Land and Trails Trust as we combine our efforts to conserve and improve the natural resources that make our area so special,” said Stuart Mitchell, acting field manager for the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office.

Volunteers, including educational and recreation groups, will meet at 8:15a.m. at the historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Rd., in Susanville.

Organizers ask that volunteers register in advance by calling Amy Holmen at (530) 257-3252, but advance registration is not required.

Other partners in the project include the Susanville Indian Rancheria, the City of Susanville, and C&S Waste Solutions which donated a trash dumpster for the event.

National Public Lands Day, now in its 24th year, is the nation’s largest single-day event focused on public lands. Organized by the National Environmental Education Foundation, the event provides opportunities for people to celebrate their public lands through volunteering.

The Great Sierra River Cleanup, a project of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, focuses on waterway restoration throughout the Sierra Nevada Region.
