Volunteers to clean along Spokane River Sept. 29

About 800 volunteers are expected to gather along the shores of the Spokane River on Sept. 29 for the 10th annual Spokane River Clean-Up organized by the Friends of the Falls. The cleanup, which usually results in tons of trash being removed, will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will again focus on the area near High Bridge Park, the University District and Spokane Valley, but there are a few tweaks this year. Friends of the Falls usually hands out small backpacks filled with trash bags and other supplies to volunteers, said event organizer Steve Faust. There are always some left over, sometimes hundreds of them. This year Friends of the Falls will be recycling a decade’s worth of backpacks. “We’re going to give out the ones we have left over,” Faust said.

A few moments later, he pops up and flies through the whitewater, turning gently as he zooms downstream, hits an eddy, and paddles back to do it again.

Spokane River cleanup set for Saturday

Hundreds of volunteers will be fanning out along the banks of the Spokane River from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday during the ninth annual Spokane River Clean-Up organized by the Friends of the Falls. Usually the effort is concentrated in the river gorge that includes People’s Park and High Bridge Park near downtown Spokane, but this year organizers have extended their reach to include several sites in the Spokane Valley area. In the last two years volunteers have also cleaned up the University District area, and that effort will also continue this year.
