All summer, boaters, swimmers and rafters have been using the Amerian River and some have left behind trash.

Bottles, clothes and wrappers cover the banks and river bed.

Saturday, 2,000 people are expected to show up at 20 different American River beaches to clean the river.

It’s all part of the 18th annual Great American River Clean up. Scuba Divers and kayakers will clean the bottom of the river, while others will scour the beaches.
