The Great American River Clean-Up (GARCU) is the American River Parkway Foundation’s largest annual cleanup. Every year, 1,200+ volunteers join us to clean up at 20 sites on the 3rd Saturday in September.
American River Parkway Foundation cleanups remove mass amounts of debris from the Parkway in just a few hours, making the Parkway a more enjoyable & safe space, protecting the river ecosystem, & improving water quality. Learn more about our Cleanups Program: arpf.org/cleanups
