by Jon Niebling on July 25, 2007

Join us: Saturday, September 15, 2007 – 8:45 am to 12 pm

The “Creek to Bay Cleanup Day” event takes place at various locations in Napa County. Divers and land cleanup crew needed.

The event is part of the 22nd annual California Coastal Cleanup Day, a statewide effort to clean trash and debris from California’s coast, bays, creeks, rivers, and lakes. The event is also part of International Coastal Cleanup Day, where thousands of volunteers in all 50 states and 90 countries from around the world take part in the largest waterway and beach cleanup of the year.

In 2006, in Napa County, 553 volunteers collected 11,970 pounds of trash (6 tons) and 3,038 pounds of recyclables (1.5 tons). Approximately 13 miles of waterways were cleaned.
