Delta Waterway Cleanups
The Conservancy co-sponsors two 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.
Creek Week with the Sacramento Area Creeks Council – Cancelled for 2021
Consistent with current guidance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the April 2021 Creek Week activities, including the waterway cleanup, have been cancelled.
We thank all of our volunteers for their willingness to be a part of the Creek Week Cleanup and look forward to seeing you all at the next event!
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!
