More than 150 volunteers worked along and in the Mokelumne River from Pioneer to Lockeford at Saturday’s Mokelumne River Cleanup.

Cleanup volunteers picked up more than a ton of trash and recyclables on about 26 miles of river and reservoir shoreline, making the Mokelumne and Pardee and Camanche Reservoirs healthier places for people, wildlife and fish.

The cleanup was part of the annual Great Sierra River Cleanup and California Coastal Cleanup Day.

In total, 64 volunteers collecting trash in the area between Electra Road and North Fork/Highway 26 gathered up 400 pounds of trash and 80 pounds of recyclables.

In the area between Middle Bar Takeout, Mokelumne Day Use Area to Stillman Magee Park, Pardee Reservoir and Camanche Reservoir, 92 volunteers collected 1,650 pounds of tras and 390 pounds of recyclables.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl.
