Looking for a regular volunteer opportunity that allows you to experience the great outdoors while giving back? Then the River Assessment Team is for you! Every 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday of the month the team will walk different segments of the San Diego River in the Mission Valley area to identify issues affecting our River, such as trash, storm water debris and illegal dumping. Your reconnaissance of these areas will allow us to effectively plan our cleanup events so that we are having a greater impact on the River’s health with the highest level of efficiency.

The team will work from 9 am - noon in areas of varying levels of difficulty, ranging from paved trails to trail blazing adventures. You are invited to attend any and all, depending on your ability level. Closed-toed shoes are required. Sun protection, water and a snack are highly recommended. Must be 18 or over to participate. NOT open for community service.

If you are interested in getting more information about this event, please contact us at (619) 297-7380 or volunteer@sandiegoriver.org.
