Annual Portneuf River Cleanup Set for September 16

ScienceRiverCleanupLINK

The Portneuf River is set to get its annual scrubbing September 16.


At 10 a.m., residents are invited to take part in the Portneuf River Cleanup. Volunteers will be picking up debris and trash that have collected on the banks of and in the river over the last year.


“We’re thankful for the hard work and effort of volunteers each year to help keep the Portneuf clean,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “Because of their efforts, the river looks better and better every year.”


For 2017, most volunteers will be spending their time between Raymond Park and the J.R. Simplot Company plant. Some volunteers are also needed at City Creek and along the Greenway south of Old Town. Interested volunteers are asked to meet at the Pacific Recycling Trailhead (on North Main, just north of Kraft Road where the Greenway Trail ends) and bring their own work gloves. Waders and water shoes are also very helpful. Those who plan on bringing or using a City provided raft or canoe are asked to contact Hannah Sanger at hsanger@pocatello.us to help better coordinate the effort and ensure volunteers have a properly fitted life jacket.


The cleanup will finish around noon.


The annual event is a shared effort between the City of Pocatello, Idaho State University’s Stream Ecology Center, and Valley Pride.
