Bitterroot River Clean Up Description:
The Bitter Root Water Forum invites you to help clean up 155 miles of our Bitterroot River on Saturday, August 13 in their annual Bitterroot River Clean-Up. There’s plenty of good, rewarding work to be done, and you’re encouraged to bring your friends, families, and even co-workers to make a fun day of it! Sign up or learn more at brwaterforum.org/clean-up. Each year we pull roughly 2,000 pounds of trash from the river.

Volunteers sign up online for a walking site or floating stretch along the Bitterroot from Sula and Painted Rocks to Missoula, and clean up on their own timeline. Some volunteers even clean up on the Thursday or Friday before the big, collective Clean Up, and that's OK, too.

Volunteers who sign up will receive a voucher for one free pint of locally-brewed beer from one of three breweries from Darby to Stevensville. Vouchers can be redeemed from 4 – 7pm on Saturday, August 13 at Blacksmith Brewing in Stevensville, Bitter Root Brewing in Hamilton, or Brigand Taphouse & Brewery in Darby.

Large trash (i.e. fridges, recliners, bathtubs, etc., or full truck loads) must be dropped off at River Park in Hamilton, where a large dumpster will be available and volunteers present to help unload. Small trash (single bags) can be dumped at Blacksmith Brewing, Bitter Root Brewing, or Brigand Taphouse, where small dumpsters will be available on Saturday the 13th.

We hope to see you there! Please visit brwaterforum.org/clean-up with questions or contact alex@brwaterforum.org
