Sixth Annual Kern River Clean-Up Day

Kern River Outfitters is proud to sponsor the sixth annual Kern River Clean-Up Day on July 11th. We will be floating the Kern River, cleaning up litter along the Lower Kern from Keysville to Democrat Take-Out. This is a great opportunity to make the Kern River an even better place to visit, work on, and live near.

Help clean-up the Kern River!

To thank everyone who participates in this event, a tri-tip and chicken dinner will be provided at 6:00 PM at Miracle Hot Springs Camp Ground. There will also be the band "Out of the Blue" to provide live entertainment.

If you would like to participate, please contact Brian Cosgrove at the Kern Valley River Council via phone: (760) 549-3760. Please bring your own leather gloves, drinking water, and sun screen. Trash bags, rafts, and river shuttle are provided.

Last year's was a great success. I know my raft was loaded with so much trash it was taller then I was when rowing downstream. And that was just my boat, you should have seen the other rafts.

Its pretty disgusting that so many outdoor "enthusiasts" (ie - mostly campers) leave so much rubbish along side the river. Especially when you see trash cans nearby.

I think its great that KRO and the community takes the time and and pride in cleaning up the river. Its one of those never ending battles fighting the trash.

If you are able to help or volunteer in anyway, you should!!! Whitewater rafting and cleaning the river; It'll probably be the 'funnest' community service you've ever done.

The live music and BBQ afterward was fun too!
