Protect Our Rivers at the 20th Annual Blackfoot River Cleanup

We’ve all seen it. The wrapper sitting along the shore. The can floating down the river. Someone’s abandoned sandal laying on the riverbank. Now’s the time we can join together to clean up the trash that ends up in our majestic rivers. This yeaer, we’re inviting you all to participate in the 20th Annual Blackfoot River Cleanup on Saturday, July 29, 2023.

For the past two decades, Blackfoot Home & Community Club, the Bureau of Land Management and Fish Wildlife and Parks, have collected thousands of pounds of debris and trash to help keep the river clean. The Blackfoot River is a pristine crown jewel of Western Montana and is a favorite destination for floaters, kayakers, rafters and fisherman.

It’s also home to the KettleHouse Amphitheater, so Logjam wants to make sure that we’re doing our part to help keep the river in the best condition possible. Logjam and the BHCC are asking you to put together a group of volunteers to help cleanup the Blackfoot River.


When: Saturday, July 29, 2023. Divers, snorkelers, and rafters arrive at 8am. Walkers, waders, and floaters arrive at 9am.
Where: Johnsrud park in Potomac, MT between mile marker 11 & 12
Do you need to register? NO. In the past you’ve had to, but this year the BHCC is making it super simple. Just check in with the volunteers at Johnsrud and they’ll point you in the right direction.
Thank You Snacks: After you’re finished cleaning up, help yourself to some grab and go snacks generously provided by BHCC until 4pm.

A lot folks wonder how they can have a positive impact on the environment. There are plenty of noble efforts to get involved with, but one of the best and most realistic ways to make a difference is to simply take a hands on approach and pick up some trash. Let’s make a difference on July 29th, 2023, and help keep our Blackfoot River trash free!
