Participate in Delta Waterway Cleanups!

Cleanups on September 23 for Coastal Cleanup Day

August 31, 2023
WEST SACRAMENTO – The Delta Conservancy is seeking volunteers to participate in two cleanups happening in the Delta on September 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The Conservancy is co-hosting cleanup sites this year at Brannan Island State Recreation Area and Sherman Island in coordination with Park Delta Bay, LLC and Rio Vista Windsurfing Association and Sherman Island Kiteboarding Organization (RVWA-SIKO).

Trash flowing into the Delta is a serious water pollution problem for both humans and wildlife. Participating in cleanups not only protects the Delta but also our oceans, as trash travels through storm drains, creeks, and rivers both locally and out to the coast.

These cleanups are taking place as part of Coastal Cleanup Day. Click here for information on more cleanups happening across the state.
