Great Sierra River Cleanup 2019 - Sycamore Island

 Registration is closed for this event

The River Parkway Trust's largest annual river cleanup is here! The Great Sierra River Cleanup is the premier volunteer event focused on removing trash and restoring the health of waterways throughout the Sierra Nevada Region. Volunteers will join Trust staff in removing trash from Sycamore Island near Valley Children's Hospital in Madera. All tools and materials are provided, though volunteers are encouraged to bring their own gloves and garbage bags (or bucket) if able.

This event will run from 9:00am until 12:00pm on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

Volunteers should dress for the weather, wear comfortable hiking shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle. Bringing your own gloves and trash bag/bucket is recommended but not necessary. 

Volunteers will meet at the picnic tables by the "Through Pond" inside Sycamore Island. There is no entry fee for volunteers. Sycamore Island is located at 39664 Avenue 7 1/2, Madera, CA 93636. 

To get there from Fresno:

  • Take Highway 41 North and exit at Children's Blvd
  • Follow the offramp around and continue on Children's Blvd/Avenue 9 past the Children's Hospital
  • Turn Left onto Road 40
  • Continue until the road turns right at Avenue 7 1/2
  • Turn left at the Driveway where you see the Sycamore Island Sign
  • Continue down the hill and follow the road toward the Bait Shop.
  • Turn Right in front of the bait shop, drive across the culvert and continue to the right. Look for event signs.
