Creek to Bay Cleanup Day

Coastal Cleanup the Napa Way!

Join us for the 30th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day

Saturday, September 20th from 9am to noon!

 


               

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 roughly 5,800 pounds of trash and 2,700 pounds of recyclables. Approximately 20 miles of waterways were cleaned. Click here for results from previous years.
