Untrash Upper Lake Merritt Canal
Time & Location
About the Event
We'll continue cleaning the Lake Merritt Tidal Canal, this time staging from the Peralta Park parking lot (aka the Kaiser Convention Center, Oakland).
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.
Hazards: Mold and burnt plastics.
Some teams will be cleaning around campsites, please read our How to Untrash Campsites Guide, for instructions on how to clean around campsites, safely, respectfully, and effectively.
