About 3,100 volunteers collected approximately 61,500 pounds of bottles, cans, appliances, car parts and other debris during the fifth annual Great Sierra River Cleanup Saturday. The event is sponsored by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC)
(SNC) in partnership with almost 60 community organizations at nearly 110 sites throughout the Sierra Nevada.
Pete Defour with the conservancy says they rain did not detour this hardy group of volunteers.
And it is always fun to hear about the stranger items volunteers find.
Volunteers scoured beaches and riverbanks to collect litter and larger items left behind by residents of and visitors to the Sierra.
