Emergency Creek Clean Up – March 29

IMG_5279.1The recent rain has brought in tons of trash that needs to be picked up before it floats down to the ocean. Let’s get together for a last minute creek clean up to capture what we can.

Join us now or for our next official creek clean-up scheduled on Saturday April 19th, from 9-noon.

Register with BCR at the event, on the northwest corner of the Centinela Ave./Ballona Creek crossing in the Del Rey neighborhood, west of Culver City.

Waivers required: As with all creek and coastal cleanups, participants under 18 need waiver forms signed by their parent or guardian (available on-site or online at www.ballonacreek.org). Adult volunteers also need to sign waivers.

Bring your own water in a reusable container. Water also will be available at the event, along with light refreshments, bags, grabbers, gloves, other tools, and educational displays. Wear closed-toed shoes and sunscreen. Buckets, hand tools to help retrieve trash from plants, and water-resistant shoes or boots can be helpful, too.

This cleanup is made possible by a permit from the County of Los Angeles and the logistical support of the City of Los Angeles. BCR also appreciates the participation and support of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council, Los Angeles Conservation Corps, and the soccer teams of Culver City High School.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome for this fun and worthwhile activity.

It’s a great way for students to earn community service credits, too.
