Clean & Green River Cleanup
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
DONATE TO THIS
Each year, San Diego River Park Foundation volunteers remove more than 200,000 pounds of trash from our River. Without our amazing volunteers, this trash would be left to pollute native animal habitats, create unsightly piles in our parks and public spaces, leach contaminants into the water, and could be washed out in to our ocean and beaches!
YOU can help with this critical work by cleaning up storm water debris and litter. Volunteers use pickers and gloves to pack this trash into garbage bags, then haul it to a dumpster.
- This event is open to volunteers of all ages, but volunteers under the age of 16 must come with an adult.

About The San Diego River Park Foundation
4891 Pacific Highway, Suite 114, San Diego, CA 92110, US
The San Diego River Park Foundation is dedicated to creating the San Diego River Park.
As the only non-governmental organization dedicated to the entire length of the River, SDRPF plays the role of an umbrella organization for many other groups.
We work to to support and empower these groups who are endeavoring to restore and enhance the San Diego River and its ecosystem, create trails and new community facilities, protect historical resources and to enhance the communities along the river.
The Foundation works to support important projects which will help to establish a river-long park while restoring and enhancing the river and its watershed, addressing flooding issues, providing greatly needed community facilities and opportunities to learn about our region's rich history, encouraging stewardship of the riparian environment, and improving the lives of those that live, work and play in the area.
The San Diego River Park Foundation is community-based grassroots non-profit organization which was founded in 2001. As a 501 (c)3 public benefit corporation, SDRPF relies upon donations and support from the community for its general operations as well as grants, both public and private.
SDRPF is not a foundation built upon an endowment or other source of funding. We are a foundation in name because we are built upon a foundation of people that have come together toward the goal of creating the San Diego River Park.
The vision of the San Diego River Park is a greenbelt from the mountains to the ocean along the 52 mile long San Diego River. This greenbelt is really a trail system and a clean and healthy river system which connects a diversity of parks, open spaces, public places and community facilities spread out along the length of the River.
The SDRPF is working to achieve this goal by partnering with government agencies, business and civic leaders and a wide range of public organizations. By promoting stewardship of the River and promoting a better understanding of the River's natural systems, the San Diego River Park Foundation is endeavoring to enhance the quality of life in San Diego.
SDRPF works with community groups and other organizations dedicated to the San Diego River and the River Park and its wildlife, recreation, water, cultural and community values to better engage the public in this project. We support projects which help to establish the river-long park such as restoring and enhancing the river, establishing public plazas and community gardens, and telling the story of the river through interpretive programs, kiosks and educational signage, and more. We also work to acquire and manage critical properties which play an important role in creating the River Park.
We are dedicated to making this project a truly treasured regional asset that is valued by all members of our community. We welcome and encourage everyone who is interested to join us in this effort.
