Portneuf River Cleanup Scheduled for August 27; Vision Study Seeks Resident Photos

Portneuf River Cleanup Pocatello

The City of Pocatello is inviting residents to take part in the 2016 Portneuf River Cleanup.

Saturday, August 27 from 10 a.m. to noon, the City of Pocatello, Portneuf Watershed Partnership, Idaho State University (ISU), ISU Stream Ecology Center, and Valley Pride are looking for volunteers to help pick up debris and trash that have accumulated on the banks of and in the river over the past year.

“It’s because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers that the Portneuf continues to look better and better,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “As a City, we’re grateful for their help to improve this community asset.”

Volunteers will be helping tidy up along the riverbank and streambed stretching from Raymond Park to the Simplot plant and in the river by canoe from the Edson Fichter Nature Area to Centennial Park. Interested volunteers are asked to meet at the Pacific Recyling Trailhead (on North Main Street) and bring their own work gloves. Waders and water shoes are also very helpful. Those who plan on bringing or using a City provided canoe or raft are asked to contact Hannah Sanger at hsanger@pocatello.us to help better coordinate the effort and ensure volunteers have a properly fitted lifejacket.

Sanger is also seeking pictures for inclusion in Portneuf River Vision Study website and printed materials. Officials are looking for photos of the river and its tributaries from the Portneuf Gap (near Fort Hall Mine Road) to Siphon Road.

“We want pictures that show the Portneuf as it is and how it could be,” Sanger explained. “We want photos that show beauty of the fish and wildlife that call it home and pictures that show it used as recreational resource like fishing or swimming. We’re also looking for images that depict the reality of what happens when it’s been neglected like when you see trash along the shore and banks that have been eroded.”

Photos can be submitted via email to portneufriver@pocatello.us and photographers will receive credit at the bottom of each image.
