Earth Day Clean Up

In honor of Earth Day, River Life Foundation will be hosting a cleanup on Saturday morning, April 22nd. Please meet at 9:00 AM near the Shell Station at Redwood Village. Sean has several spots in mind :-). We will be cleaning until 1 PM and then having lunch.

To date, RLF has cleaned up 211,000 lbs of trash, that might have otherwise ended up in our local streams, rivers and oceans. Even if it's just an hour, please come out and support RLF and your community.

Thanks to all who support and volunteer for RLF!

River Life Strikes Again!


River Life recently had the pleasure of helping Steven get back to his friends and family in West Virginia.  When Steven gets back, he has a potential job lined up.  He just needed a little help and someone believing in him. Total cost of the ticket and travel - $375.  Total cost of someone starting over - priceless.
