River Clean Up and Picnic

Become a True Mermaid by Cleaning Our Waterways

Join the American River Parkway Foundation as we become true stewards of the aquatic environment! Convention attendees will gather on the rivers of Sacramento to gather trash, tidy the beach and assist in tangible ecological activism! 


Trash will be gathered and weighed after an hour and a half of cleaning time; whoever gathers the most trash will win a one of a kind Mermaid Crown from Mermaid and Mom!


After the cleanup has wrapped, we invite all attendees to a picnic on the newly cleaned beaches. This is a chance to make new merfriends, grab some great photos, and even cool down in the river!


Cleaning the waterways has always been a huge part of The California Mermaid Convention and we are so proud to continue this tradition every year. Please help us become true stewards and guardians of the waterways of California.
