With about 2,500 volunteers backing them up, there is no question why the outlook of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy is to see about 90,000 pounds of trash to be collected. Known better as the Great Sierra River Clean-up, the volunteers are tasked to collect a ton load of discarded junk and rubbish which made its way to the California landscape.
Among the discarded stuff collected included car parts and debris. With Californians getting their water from the Sierra, the clean-up should be a great breakthrough as far as ridding the riverbanks and beaches of the troublesome trash items.
The Great Sierra River Cleanup took place at 100 sites in the region and is now on its fourth year. The said event is said to be one of the largest one-day event in California where about 57,442 volunteers took part which in turn resulted in the removal of 320 tons of trash.
