Join Us for Putah Creek Cleanup Day 2018!

It's time to give Putah Creek a facelift! Please join us for Putah Creek Cleanup Day 2018, on Saturday, September 15th, 9 am - 12 noon

Putah Creek Council is celebrating 30 years of coordinating cleanups on Putah Creek. Since our first cleanup in 1988, a generation of supporters has helped remove large legacy dumps and continued to help clean and properly discard of tens of thousands of pounds of trash along Putah Creek over the last three decades. Garbage continues to find its way into Putah Creek annually, damaging wildlife habitat, polluting our water, and making visits to Putah Creek unpleasant for visitors. Fortunately, 100 or more Putah Creek enthusiasts join us each year to participate in this local cleanup effort, the Council’s largest environmental stewardship event of the year. 

Since 2004, we have held our annual Putah Creek Cleanup in partnership with the California Coastal Commission on California Coastal Cleanup Day, which also coincides with International Coastal Cleanup Day. Volunteers participating on September 15 will be part of the largest single-day volunteer event on the planet!

Thanks to generous funding from the Solano County Water Agency and the City of Winters, Putah Creek Council will coordinate several cleanup crews at sites on Putah Creek from Stevenson Bridge to Winters Putah Creek Nature Park. 

Registration for the cleanup is required. Please register at this link: 2018 Putah Creek Cleanup Day Registration.

On the morning of the cleanup, we will gather in Rotary Park in Winters. Cleanup sites include Stevenson Bridge in Davis, Winters Putah Creek Nature Park, Putah Creek Road from Railroad Avenue to downstream of the I-505 overcrossing, and Dry Creek.

Because we need to have the correct amount of supplies and extra water at each site and also provide lunch after the cleanup, we ask that all participants register in advance.

We hope to see you this year at the Cleanup!
