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.
