Come celebrate Earth Day with the Napa RCD, Napa Spring Clean and Kayak Napa Valley by beautifying downtown Napa! We need dedicated volunteers to help clean up 4 sites along our creeks, the Napa River, and our downtown streets.

Come have a great time doing something good for the Earth!

 

Sites:

  • Napa Creek- Behind Firefighter's Museum at the corner of Main and Pearl Streets.  Important!! Volunteers are encouraged to clean the downtown streets and stay away from the reach of Napa Creek where construction was just finished so that the creek banks have time to stabilize and new plantings are not disturbed.
  • Kennedy Park, boat ramp
  • South Wetlands, end of Jefferson St.
  • Riverside Drive, at Elm St.

Kayak Napa Valley has generously donated the use of their boats for the cleanup, so we need adult volunteers who would like to kayak and pick up trash.  Kayaks will leave from the Main Street boat dock.  There are only 12 kayak spots, so RSVP soon!

 

More Information:

Gear:
Garbage bags, latex gloves, and light refreshments will be provided at each site. 
Wear sunscreen and clothes that you are willing to get dirty.

 

Water:
Though we will provide water, in the interest of conserving resources and stopping the cycle of plastic waste in our waterways, we encourage you to bring your own water in re-usable containers.

 

Waiver:
Children under 18 are required to have a liability waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian before they can participate. Click here to download the waiver.
