Step 1: Scout some sites. Select a river to clean up. If you don't have an area in mind, contact American Rivers, who will connect you with a local watershed association or outfitter. Whether the land is public or private, you'll need permission to clean it; download a copy of the Organizer's Handbook at AmericanRivers.org for guidance on how to obtain permission.
