Operation 999 November 19th River Cleanup Event

Please help assist the Operation 9-2-99 project to clean up the Tuolumne River through Modesto and promote recreation opportunities.
The next cleanup will be next Saturday, November 19th from 9:00AM-Noon.

Meeting 816 Crater Ave. between Dallas St. and Ustick Rd. off of Hatch Rd. on the south bank of the river. A large group of volunteers is needed for this cleanup. Tell a friend, a family member, a classmate, a church or club or team member, a neighbor, or a co-worker that we need them. Direct them to the website at Forward them the information page and waiver forms.

Post the information on social media. The website is the best place for volunteers to sign up and has details, including a map, about the next cleanup. Volunteers under the age of 18 need a parent signed waiver form that is available on the website and should be completed in advance. Many volunteers are needed to return this area to a clean, natural riparian habitat open to recreation that the community can be proud of. We hope to see you and your group there. Feel free to forward this information to anyone else who might be interested in reducing blight and increasing recreation opportunities in our community. Together we are making a real difference.
