'Clean Up All Year' on the Bitterroot River
Each year the Bitter Root Water Forum hosts the Bitterroot River Clean Up the second Saturday of August.
The clean up is a Bitterroot tradition that plays an important role in protecting the resource we all rely on. Spurred by this event, the Bitter Root Water Forum started the “Clean Up All Year” initiative. This program expands the one day event into a year round effort to keep our rivers and streams clean.
“We’ll have reusable trash bags available throughout the valley that folks can take with them when they head out on the river,” says Heather Barber, Bitter Root Water Forum Executive Director. “It’s important to get these bags into people’s hands before they hit the water so they have somewhere to put their trash while they’re out.”
