Untrash Lake Merritt Tidal Canal - South Side
Time & Location
About the Event
This is a beautiful area with significant ecological value; the bike path is used by cyclists and joggers.
We will be focusing on cleaning around the Tidal Canal itself, up through Tenth Ave.
BRING water, a snack, and an N95 MASK - Some teams may be cleaning burned-out campsites that contain mold and burnt plastics; we strongly recommend wearing N95 masks and a long-sleeve shirt for this work.
After cleaning campsites, we recommend washing your entire arm before eating or smoking, and when you get home, to put your clothes directly into the laundry and take a shower.
We will be staging from the Peralta College parking lot. When you enter the lot, look for us closest to the highway and canal.
This area is a mix of a lot of loose trash. Wear comfortable shoes for walking.
Hazards: Mold and burnt plastics.
