Bitter Root Water Forum starts Year Round River Clean Up project

 

Last August volunteers collected 2,360 pounds of trash in and around the Bitterroot River during an annual cleanup project that’s been happening for years.

 

This year, the folks who host that annual event are hoping that volunteers won’t find nearly as much to pick up.

 

The Bitter Root Water Forum is starting a new project that it’s calling Year Round River Clean Up.

 

Their plan is to set up stands in up to 20 Bitterroot Valley businesses that will offer free reusable trash bags to floaters getting ready to spend a day on the river. Their hope is the people will fill those bags not only with the trash they generate, but also the stuff they notice on the banks of the Bitterroot.
