Keeping the River Clean!
The Merced River is cleaner, thanks to the efforts of over twenty dedicated youth and college students last Saturday.
Adventure Risk Challenge, a 1% for the Planet nonprofit member which provides literacy and leadership training for youth, partnered with UC-Merced’s Yosemite Leadership Program and Ethos Mariposa for the river clean-up. The event was organized by the Sierra Foothill Conservancy and the Upper Merced River Watershed Council. We appreciate these great efforts and let’s continue to preserve the Merced River!
