Upfront, I'll apologize if this is an event that's already in the planning stages for this year, but I haven't seen anything posted as of yet - and there is already some good momentum on another thread about river clean up. The idea is to get as many anglers and boats and trucks and helping hands as possible, and get the Yakima River cleaned up. This year seems particularly bad to me - it's sad to see the trash, discarded clothes, punctured rafts, etc - you name it, the river needs our help. If you're interested in helping out in any way possible, post up here - I'll contact the shops, guides, and outfitters in the area (or post up if you represent one) and start the ball rolling. I'll get the Bellevue/Issaquah TU Chapter involved too. Any other ideas? If you've facilitated a river clean-up like this before - GREAT - let's not reinvent the wheel. I'd just like to get the ball rolling and start generating interest. Yes - the river will need to come down some in flows - hence the October choice. But there's plenty of trash to be taken now.... Thanks for your comments, support, and ideas. Let's get something done. Who wants to help?
