Creek Week 2019 is around the corner. Join other Sacramento County residents to clean-up and beautify our creeks, Apr. 4-14. Creek Week offers all ages the opportunity to appreciate, explore and learn how to protect our local creeks and aquatic life. There will be plenty of fun and educational activities for the whole family to enjoy!
The Sacramento Area Creeks Council kicks off activities with the Creek Week Splash-Off on Thursday, Apr. 4, starting at 11 a.m. This year’s Splash Off will be at Camp Pollock, 1501 Northgate Blvd. Dr. Roland Brady will be awarded the 2019 Creek Steward Award for his extraordinary efforts to organize and carry out the clean-up of Steelhead Creek.
There will be educational events and activities all week throughout Sacramento County with the big finale on Saturday, Apr. 13, starting at 9 a.m. All involved are then invited to celebrate their efforts at Carmichael Park (5750 Grant Avenue) from noon to 2 p.m.
Volunteers are responsible for making the Creek Week experience work. Last year, more than 2,000 volunteers removed more than 19 tons of trash from neighborhood creeks and the Delta.
You can be part of an area-wide volunteer effort to improve and enhance our urban waterways by removing trash and invasive plants to help support a healthy creek system by volunteering for this annual spring cleaning of our waterways.
