Together, the Jordan River Commission and Splore facilitate several river cleanup, and weed pulling volunteer events each year.  Additional conservation projects are completed during the annual Get Into the River festival, thanks to the help of many cities, counties and community partners.

If you or your business or organization are interested in volunteering along the Jordan River, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you with the details.

Join in the effort!

Our volunteer program runs between April and October each year.  Volunteer efforts so far have been focused on in-river clean-ups, habitat restoration projects, and pulling puncturevine weeds, which are notorious for puncturing bicycle tires and pose a barrier to regular use of the trail in some sections.  The more people using the trail for bicycling and jogging, the safer and more enjoyable the trail is for the whole community. By using volunteers, fewer chemical treatments are sprayed to manage the weeds and both water quality and the health and safety of trail users is protected.
