For the 6th annual Tijuana River Action Month (TRAM), WILDCOAST will work with hundreds of volunteers that will gather from September 12 to October 17 to clean up ocean-bound trash, waste tires and debris from the Tijuana River Valley on both sides of the U.S. Mexico border.

This binational effort of the Tijuana River Action Network (TRAN) and WILDCOAST will address the waste water and cross border trash that threatens the Tijuana River Valley’s valuable ecological, cultural, recreational, and economic resources.   The Tijuana River Action Network is a grassroots collaboration of organizations in the Tiuana-San Diego region committed to cross-border collaboration to restore the Tijuana River watershed by engaging in stewardship, outreach, education and advocacy.

Aside from volunteer driven trash cleanups, TRAM will also have small-scale habitat restoration events, nature walks, invasive species removal, build park amenities out of repurposed materials, and hold a volunteer appreciation party on the final day (October 17) at Monument Mesa with elected official speakers.   See below for a list of major events and make sure to visit www.tjriveraction.net for a complete list of activities in Mexico, locations, dates, registration, and details about events occurring during Tijuana River Action Month.
