Volunteers needed to help clean Santa Clara's waterways!

Please join the effort to keep our creeks clean, healthy and beautiful. Volunteering at a cleanup event helps to maintain open areas for everyone to enjoy.

Creek Cleanups provide opportunities to meet new people, to get outside, and to be in a stress-relieving, natural setting. Our cleanup days are also a great way for students to fulfill their community service requirements. Individuals, clubs, and classes are welcome and encouraged to come out and participate in our cleanup events.

Remember to wear long pants, long sleeves and a hat. Use plenty of sunscreen. Bring your own reusable water bottle. Light snacks will be provided. We will provide trash bags, pick-up sticks, and gloves.  

Everyone must fill out a Waiver of Liability (English) (Spanish) and turn it into the Site Coordinator upon arrival. All youth under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian signature on their Waiver of Liability.
