Cleanup Event Details

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

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

Trash is the visible form of stormwater pollution, a threat to the water and forest health in our beloved park. Removing litter helps to keep Sonoma Creek clean, protecting its ecosystems, wildlife, and visitors!
