Putah Creek Cleanup 2015: Davis Cleanup Sites

 Registration is closed for this event
Saturday, September 19th, 9 am - noon (lunch provided!)

Meet at the UC Davis Riparian Reserve Picnic Grounds (Camp Putah). (See map below)

Volunteers wishing to help collect trash at Stevenson Bridge, the UC Davis Riparian Reserve, or Mace Blvd. (City of Davis South Fork Preserve) will meet at the UC Davis Picnic Grounds fire pit at 9:00 am. As a courtesy to other volunteers and Putah Creek Council staff, and to help the cleanup run smoothly, please arrive on time.

At the Picnic Grounds, volunteers will sign in, fill out a waiver form, pick up a t-shirt (while supplies last), choose a cleanup site, and gather supplies before heading off to your cleanup site with your Site Captains. All Davis cleanup groups will rendezvous back at the Picnic Grounds at 12:00 noon to report cleanup data, eat a yummy lunch (burritos and watermelon), and possibly win a raffle prize! 

Putah Creek Council uses a "bring your own" philosophy to reduce the environmental impact of the cleanup event. We ask that volunteers please bring a pair of lightweight gloves and a bucket or reusable bag for collecting trash.  If you are unable to provide these, a limited number of plastic gloves and buckets/bags will be available. 

We also strongly recommend that volunteers:

  • Wear long pants, closed-toe sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen
  • Bring a full, refillable water bottle (additional water will be available)

If you are under 18, you must bring a waiver form, SIGNED by your parent/guardian, to participate in the cleanup. Click here to print the form: Liability waiver and photo release form.

So we can order the correct amount of food and supplies, we ask that all volunteers please register to participate in the cleanup (see below).
