Volunteer Opportunities Available for Upcoming Tri-Valley Creeks to Bay Clean-up

Join us for the sixth annual Tri-Valley Creeks to Bay Clean-up on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to noon! The Clean-up event is part of Coastal Cleanup Day which is the largest statewide and international effort to clean trash and debris from our waterways.

Volunteers are still needed to clean trash and debris from four of eight participating Livermore creek sites.

Trash and debris negatively impact quality of life, property values and housing prices; and endanger plant, fish and wildlife populations and habitat. Removing trash and debris not only improves the aesthetic beauty of neighborhoods; it also helps to improve water quality and aquatic habitat in neighbourhood creeks.

Due to limited space, volunteers must pre-register. Visit http://www.trivalleycreeks.org to learn how to sign-up and download a required waiver form. Volunteers under 18 years of age must have the waiver form signed by a parent or guardian. Volunteers under 13 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. For more information, contact Lynna Allen at lallen@cityoflivermore.net.
