Untrash El Cerrito Creek! - Sun 27th, 4 to 6 PM

This is a small stretch of open creek at the foot of El Cerrito Hill. Sadly, it's bordered on one side by a parking lot, but there's enough of greenbelt along the creek, to support rare wildlife. While I was scouting, I ran into a group of Birders who were excited about a rare bird spotting.

About the Event

We will be meeting in the Southern edge of the Ranch 99 Parking Lot, next to the creek.

This creek is an important wildlife resource, and it will only take a day to clean it, and I thought we could squeak it in before moving on to Aquatic Park. The plan is to clean the entire stretch of open creek starting at the bottom of the Ranch 99 parking lot where I'll set up, and moving up the creek all the way up to San Pablo Avenue. There's minor dumping where streets intersect the creek, and a scattering of trash in the creekbed itself all the way up.

There will be plenty of dry-land work, but for the adventurous, it would be great to plan for some creek wading. I'll bring soap and water to clean up after.

Note: I moved the start time up to 4:00 PM because I thought it would better to end earlier.
