Delta Waterway Cleanup
September 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
What is the Delta Waterway Cleanup?
You will be participating in the Delta’s part of California Coastal Cleanup Day – California’s largest annual volunteer event is sponsored by the California Coastal Commission and brings folks together at sites around the state to celebrate and share their appreciation of California’s fabulous coast and waterways. California’s event is likewise part of International Coastal Cleanup Day, sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy, which is the largest volunteer event on earth! People from all walks of life gather at the river’s edge to help free our rivers, coastlines and beaches from ugly trash. The date is ALWAYS the third Saturday in September.
Why are waterway cleanups important?
Trash travels down to the ocean via rivers, creeks, storm drains, and sewers. Debris that gets picked up from our waterways is debris that WON’T get swept out to sea where it harms our oceans and wildlife – not to mention Cleanup improves our beaches, parks and recreation sites.
