Working together to protect our creeks
Join a Sacramento County effort to clean-up and beautify our creeks, April 4-12! During Creek Week, all ages will have the opportunity to appreciate, explore, learn and work to protect our local creeks and aquatic life. There will be plenty of fun and educational activities for the whole family to enjoy!
On April 4, the activities start with the Creek Week Splash-Off to thank the 2014 sponsors and supporters at Tetotom Park at 5124 Heartland Drive in Antelope. The event will acknowledge all those who make Creek Week possible year after year and the annual Creek Steward Award will be presented to Antelope High School. Keynote speaker will be Aaron Robertson, Chief Deputy Director of the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
There will be educational events and activities all week throughout Sacramento County, but “The Big Day” is Saturday, April 12 – Clean Up Day!
On April 12, volunteers are needed for 12 locations in the County.
First we clean! The morning is devoted to removing trash and debris in and along our neighborhood creeks.
Then we celebrate! At Carmichael Park, 5750 Grant Avenue, there will be exhibits, fun activities and contests! Entertainment will be provided by Radio Disney Rockin’ Road show. Volunteers will also enjoy a free lunch and t-shirt.
