19th Annual Oakland Creek to Bay Day
September 20, 2014
City of Oakland Public Works thanks all the volunteers who helped make Oakland’s 19th annual Creek to Bay Day a success! Oakland Creek to Bay Day is part of California and International Coastal Cleanup Day, which engages thousands of volunteers in trash removal and beautification of waterways and shorelines across California, the nation, and in about 100 participating countries. Approximately 1,000 Oakland volunteers joined these global efforts. Oakland volunteers removed over 500 bags of trash and over 150 cubic yards of invasive weeds from Oakland’s creeks and bay shoreline. Throughout California there were more than 850 cleanup projects and over 54,000 volunteers who removed 576,571 pounds of trash and 109,494 pounds of recyclables!
Special thanks to the community site coordinators and supporting organizations who this year helped coordinate projects at 34 locations. Oakland Public Works provided volunteer tools, promotion, and debris pickup services. Chinook Book and Numi Tea donated giveaway items to our volunteers. The support from the California Coastal Commission, Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, the East Bay Regional Park District, the Port of Oakland, and Waste Management year after year is also integral to the success of the event.
Please join us for volunteer events throughout the year, and for a 20th anniversary Oakland Creek to Bay Day Saturday September 19, 2015!
