Cleaning up Butte County

Conservation group gathers 30 bags of waste from Feather River

During the last weekend of March, a group of 37 volunteers headed out to make Butte County a prettier place to be. It was the Butte County Resource Conservation District’s second trail and river cleanup event, which they scheduled on Cesar Chavez Day weekend to celebrate the leader’s commitment to community service.

The event was a success, organizers said in a press release. The Resource Conservation District was joined by other local groups, including volunteers from the California Conservation Corps and Chico High School students. In all, they collected 30 bags of trash and waste from 3 miles along the Feather River in Oroville.
