Upriver Scrub is September 27th

We were sad to hear the Spokane River cleanup was cancelled this year but fear not: The Fifth Annual Upriver Scrub is taking place Saturday, September 27th. Starting at 9:30 a.m., volunteers will help with Spokane River cleanup from Stateline to Mirabeau Park.

To assure there are enough supplies and support, registration is required. And registrants will be entered into a raffle from REI to win an Outdoor Fun Package that includes camp chairs, festival mini bar and more valued at over 200 dollars

The meet up locations include Stateline, Harvard Road, Barker Road and Mirabeau Park. Whitewater club members will be on the water cleaning sections of the shore while land-based volunteers will work the shoreline from various meet up spots.

Upriver Scrub is presented by Johnson Controls and coordinated by the Northwest Whitewater Association (NWA) and the Spokane River Forum. Additional sponsors include the Mountaineer Foundation, REI, the American Canoe Association and Waste Management.

Said NWA President Paul Delaney, “It’s a great, productive way to spend a Saturday morning by the river.”
