Event description

Description

Join us for the largest volunteer event in the world, Coastal Clean Up Day, where as a global effort, one million pounds of trash is removed in just 3 hours from creeks, rivers, drainages, and all types of waterways leading into the ocean and lakes! We are stewarding this section of Kirker Creek in Pittsburg that leads into Suisun Bay and eventually the Pacific Ocean.

Project activities will consist of climbing up steep creek banks and working along roadsides to remove as much debris and trash as possible. This project is supported by the Community Watershed Stewardship Grant Program of the Contra Costa Watershed Program, administered by the Watershed Project.

**Volunteers under the age of 18 require a parent or gaurdian’s signature to participate. To obtain a waiver, email Roxana with the headline as “Coastal Cleanup Day Waiver for Minor” at rlucero@savemountdiablo.org

What to bring: Sturdy closed toed shoes with grip, pants, your favorite reusable water bottle, and a bucket for trash if you have one!

Leader: Roxana Lucero, Land Stewardship Associate for Save Mount Diablo

Meet: Next to 5755 Nortonville Rd, Pittsburg, 94565 (parking along Nortonville and at Thomas Home Ranch, follow signs)

Directions: From Walnut Creek, head east on Ygnacio Valley Road which becomes Kirker Pass Road once you pass Clayton Road. Follow Kirker Pass Road for three miles past the Concord Pavilion, turn right on Nortonville Road, and take the first driveway on the right. From East County/Hwy 4, take Railroad Ave south for 2.5 miles, turn left on Nortonville Road, and take the first driveway on the right.
