Fifth Annual Great Sierra River Cleanup September 21

(Auburn) – About 3,500 volunteers are expected to head to the banks of Sierra rivers, lakes and streams Sept. 21 for the fifth annual Great Sierra River Cleanup, sponsored by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC).

During the first four years nearly 15,000 volunteers joined together to clear more than 550 tons of trash and recyclables from watersheds throughout the Sierra Nevada.  Hundreds of community groups have spread across 22 counties and 1,280 river miles to remove appliances, cigarette butts, beverage cans, baby diapers, tires, furniture, shopping carts and plastic items from the rivers and streams that supply California with more than 60 percent of its water.

This effort, in partnership with the California Coastal Cleanup Day, serves to promote good stewardship on all of our waterways, from the source to the sea.

Back-To-School Shopping? Read this first!

It's time to think about ways you can shop wisely for back-to-school clothing and school supplies. Savvy shoppers begin planning now to get the most for their back-to-school dollars.

"Hold on to your wallets", said CEO, Blair Looney of Better Business Bureau serving Central California. School supplies, school clothes, electronics, shoes and much more will be purchased in the upcoming months and one third will most likely do some of that shopping "online". Families are prepared to spend an average of $800 to get their children ready for the new school year.

Just about everyone has felt the economic pinch and with that, families plan to shop for sales now more than ever. Shopping online can be more intriguing due to coupons, and buy more generic or store brands, among other money-saving strategies.

On-line purchasing may save time, but check before you click!

  • Supervision alone is not enough to prevent serious injuries.Firework-related injuries often happen when a parent or an adult is present.
  • Even if you do not allow your children to touch fireworks, they can still be seriously injured if they are around others who are using fireworks.1 in 4 firework-related injuries to children occurs to bystanders.
