River Rally brings together thousands of Santa Clarita residents each year to clean up a portion of the Santa Clara River, which is home to endangered species, archaeological sites and historical landmarks. Since 1994, River Rally volunteers have collected more than 387,000 pounds of trash and debris from the Santa Clara River and its tributaries, helping to preserve the longest free-flowing river in Southern California and a major water source for the Santa Clarita Valley.
The 20th Annual River Rally clean-up will be held on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Santa Clara River near Wiley Canyon Road and Via Princessa bridge.
