Description

Sonoma Ecology Center’s “Earthling” Teen Volunteer Group is hosting a COVID-safe Earth Day celebration and creek cleanup at Nathanson Creek Preserve on Saturday, April 24, 9-10:30, 10:45-12:15, in honor of Earth Day and SEC’s 31st Anniversary! The event is open to people of all ages and there will be a variety of activities to safely participate in; from the scavenger hunt and seed planting (take home a pollinator sprouting cup) to cleaning up trash along the creek. In order to guarantee participants’ safety and to comply with Sonoma County’s health order governing outdoor activities, mask-wearing and other social distancing protocols will be in effect in all areas. The main activities, and the start of the creek cleanup, will be at the Nathanson Preserve Demonstration Garden at the corner of 2nd Street West and East MacArthur Street. (Please do not park in the MacArthur Place lot.). RSVPs are required

For questions or to register, please contact Tony Passantino, SEC education program manager, at tony@sonomaecologycenter.org.

Cleanup Event Details

Volunteers will clean up the restored section of Nathanson Creek behind Sonoma Valley High School and Adele Harrison Middle School. 

A maximum of 12 volunteers per shift are allowed and RSVPs are required. Please arrive as close to the start time as possible for a brief safety talk beforehand.

Volunteers are asked to bring their own water and to wear comfortable shoes and layered clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Organizers will provide litter grabbers, garbage bags, buckets, and gloves; volunteers may bring their own work gloves and plastic bags if they have them.

After each cleanup event, recyclables will be separated from trash and the trash weighed and recorded.
