Acerca del evento

Join the Wood River Land Trust in their commitment to environmental stewardship at the Big Wood River Clean Up Event, happening Saturday, September 21, 2024. This community-driven initiative aims to preserve the health and beauty of the Big Wood River, a vital natural resource in the Wood River Valley. Participants of all ages are invited to roll up their sleeves, don their gloves, and join forces to remove litter and debris from the riverbanks and surrounding areas. By coming together for this important cause, we can make a tangible impact on the cleanliness and sustainability of our local waterways. Join us for a day of camaraderie, conservation, and making a positive difference in our community's natural heritage.

 PROJECT OVERVIEW 

Every year, the Wood River Land Trust hosts the Big Wood River Clean Up. This is an awesome way for the community to spend the morning with friends and family, giving back to the river that gives our community so much. We staff three locations - the Howard Preserve in Bellevue, the Draper Preserve in Hailey, and Warm Springs Preserve in Ketchum. 

SIGN UP HERE!

 GIVING BACK 

All funds raised through the Big Wood River Clean Up event go directly to protecting and restoring the Big Wood River, its floodplain, and its tributaries. By reinvesting the dollars that we raise through this event into projects to maintain and enhance Big Wood fishery, we are ensuring that world class fishing will be sustainable into the future.

During the 2022 event, over 1,440 pounds of trash was removed from the Big Wood River and its banks. Many volunteers came back to the party with a single bag of trash and exclaimed that “I didn’t find that much trash!” But, when combined with the other 75 volunteers working along the river that day, the impact was huge! It offers a great opportunity for community members to feel part of a larger movement of stewarding the river while also allowing younger participants to learn about river stewardship early in life

 INCLUSIVITY 

The Big Wood River Clean Up is designed to be largely inclusive to all members of our community, and Land Trust staff works hard to find projects that can be tackled by any volunteer - from highly energized high school students to easy access spots for kids and families
