Trash drop off at Kiwanis River Park in Hamilton.

Each year, volunteers for BRWF pull thousands of pounds of trash out of the Bitterroot River. Volunteers claim stretches of the river from Sula and Painted Rocks to the confluence at the Clark Fork in Missoula. Sign up above to claim your spot! 

Volunteer appreciation BBQ from 4-6 pm at River Park.

We're hoping for less trash this year thanks to our Clean Up All Year program but we need your help to find out!

Can't clean up but don't want to miss out?

Join us! We just ask for $5 if you want food.

Help the Run for the River 5K or the Bitterroot River Clean Up run smoothly, all in the name of clean, abundant water!

A variety of tasks and times are available to pick from on both Friday and Saturday.
