Join us for Kern County's largest river cleanup.

  • We will meet at the Upper Richbar picnic site located in the Lower Kern River. Just a few miles north of the mouth of the canyon from Bakersfield. Volunteers are encouraged to arrive 10-15 minutes early to register and be assigned to a team and be briefed on the event and safety.
  • We encourage everyone to please dress according to weather and terrain. Hiking boots are highly reccomended along with hats, sunscreen, a small backpack, water and any other piece of gear you require. We will have complimentary coolers of cold Gatorades and water available.
  • We will return to basecamp at 2:00pm as we will have BJ's Restaruant from Bakersfield cater pizza for all the volunteers.
