Delta Waterway Cleanups
The Conservancy has co-sponsored annual cleanups to educate and promote awareness of the importance of protecting and improving water quality in the Delta. The trash that flows into the Delta is a serious water pollution problem for both humans and wildlife. At the Delta Waterway Cleanups, volunteers actively participate in water stewardship practices by cleaning up trash and preventing it from reaching waterways and ultimately, the ocean.
Delta Waterway Cleanups provide a personal experience connecting volunteers with the issue of trash pollution. After participating in a cleanup, volunteers recognize the need to reduce the amount of waste we create, recycle and reuse the waste we do create, and dispose of waste properly and thoughtfully.
Delta Waterway Cleanup
The Delta Protection Commission and the California Coastal Commission host a Delta Waterway Cleanup in September each year, as part of California Coastal Cleanup Day. The Delta Conservancy will participate in sites throughout the Delta. Stay tuned for the 2022 Cleanup Day date to be announced!

Creek Week, a 30-year tradition in Sacramento County, was re-envisioned in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can stay involved by checking the Creek Week website for ways to take action year-round to protect our creeks and rivers. We can all make a difference by practicing random acts of cleanup! Taking action to remove trash from our waterways promotes creek health and benefits our Delta region!
