Putah Creek Spring Cleanup 2018
There are myriad ways that trash finds it's way into Putah Creek. It blows in on windy days, flows in through gutters and culverts, and even gets left behind by thoughtless visitors. This refuse endangers wildlife, pollutes the water, and inhibits the beauty of our beloved local natural area. It is time to give Putah Creek a much-needed spring cleaning!
This year, we are excited host a spring cleanup of Winters Putah Creek Nature Park as part of the Sacramento Area Creeks Council's Creek Week, a weeklong event celebrating our natural areas and including 90+ cleanup sites along regional creeks! Join us on April 14th to help make Putah Creek beautiful, clean and safe, while helping make a lasting impact for California waterways.
