Bitterroot River Clean Up celebrates 15th year

Since 2006 volunteers throughout the valley have come together for an Annual Bitterroot River Clean Up.

Volunteers spread out from Painted Rocks and Sula all the way to Missoula to clean as much of the river as possible.

The Bitter Root Water Forum, a local nonprofit that works to bring the community together to protect, enhance and restore waterways in the Bitterroot, has been hosting the event for over eight years.
