Rio Limpio: Tule River Stewardship and Trash Removal and 50th Anniversary of Wild and Scenic Rivers

  • WildPlaces Headquarters 37608 rio vista dr 93265 (map)

You care about the Tule River. You don't want to see it get trashed, burned, or closed. Maybe you've been going there since you were a kid. Maybe you are a brand new visitor from another state or country. Maybe you are Caucasian, African American, Native American, Latino, Asian, Two-Spirit. Maybe you are Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or atheist.

Any and all of these identities have one thing in common: we all love the river, recognize it's importance, and want to act to protect it from harm. That is you, otherwise you wouldn't be receiving this invitation. Also

Also, 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. Groups around the country are celebrating this milestone and looking to the future of our Wild and Scenic Rivers...and WildPlaces joins the party.

With generous support from Patagonia and Rivers Network, WildPlaces joins this effort at this event plus on Sept 1, 2018 on the Tule for the "Wild and Scenic Rivers are Our Rivers" event. 

Join us Sunday, July 22 from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. for quick walk down The Stairs to share the good word about river stewardship and, yes, pick up a little bit of other people's trash. No regrets. No complaining. It's just what we do. 

Be the change you want the world to be. Please come out , even if it is to pick up one can or to show support to the fine young people who will be doing the heavy lifting. 

It's best to call and register that you are coming at 559.539.5263 or email at We will meet at WildPlaces Headquarters at 8 a.m. and caravan or van-pool to the sites. Bring water bottle, hat, sun screen. We will provide the rest, including a simple, nutritouous lunch afterwards.
