Creek to Bay Cleanup Day

Coastal Cleanup the Napa Way!

Thanks to everyone who made this year's Coastal Cleanup Day such a success!

At the 11 sites throughout Napa County, 337 volunteers braved the elements to lend their hands in support of clean waterways! Volunteers scoured wetlands, creeks, and the Napa River, picking up trash and debris at sites from American Canyon to Lake Berryessa. In total, volunteers removed 5,800 pounds of trash, and roughly 2,700 pounds of recyclables from our waterways!

 

Coastal Cleanup Day 2014 will be held on Saturday, 9/20 from 9am to noon! Mark your calendars!

 


               

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

 

In Napa County in 2013, 337 volunteers collected 5,804 pounds of trash and 2,737 pounds of recyclables. Approximately 20 miles of waterways were cleaned. Click here for results from previous years.
