  • RCWA – Ali’s Friday Arcade Crk Cleanup
    09:00 -12:00
    03/01/2024

    This series of cleanups are being made possible by a Watershed Stewardship and Education Grant awarded by the Sacramento County Stormwater Quality Program. We would like to sincerely thank the County for funds needed to keep our volunteers properly equipped.
    We will continue to partner with Arcade Creek – Adopt A Creek Project to focus on another infamously trashed stretch of this 16.2 mile creek. We will be visiting a new spot, upstream from Ali’s adopted section, as we inch up toward Lilia’s adopted sections in the City of Citrus Heights. The cleanup area is upstream from Keoncrest where we performed numerous cleanups last year, and downstream from Greenback Lane.
    We will park at the far back of the Hidden Oaks Apartment Complex by their little dog park, gear up, and walk to Arcade Creek from there. Please arrive on time as the complex is fairly expansive and the route to our meeting spot could be confusing.
    Please bring water and only do what you are comfortable doing. As always, you can leave whenever you want or need.
    This cleanup will have some challenging access spots into the creek and may require a rope to get into the channel, however, there are some flat spots as well for easy pickin’.
    The event will range in difficulty from moderate to hard and may not be suitable for children under the age of 16. There will be something for almost everyone as we will be cleaning in the creek and up above, on land.
    We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy WATERPROOF footwear, grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. There will be water in the creek, fairly deep in a few spots. Participants will be required to wear rain boots or waders if they intend to get into the water. The water is quite chilly this time of year. Entry into any waters is always optional.
    As with all events shared on our Page, participation is performed solely at your own risk. Please place safety FIRST and do only what you feel comfortable doing. Moreover, participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver form if they have not done so previously.
    Overall, be safe, have fun and get some “Exercise with a Purpose”!, as Bill Templin says. Thank you!

  • RCWA – Arcade Crk Cleanup at Norwood (3.0)
    09:00 -12:00
    03/02/2024

    Our apologies, but this will be an 18 and Over Event due to numerous active encampments in the area.
    With recent high waters now receding, we plan to continue with this new area of Arcade Creek to remove soaked and muddy trash and debris campers did not move out of harm’s way when waters were higher. This event will be conducted in coordination with American River Flood Control District who has graciously agreed to haul off all of the trash and encampment debris we pile up. And this will also be a BIG one.
    Sturdy, waterproof boots,long sleeves and long pants are recommended. Folks desiring to enter the creek will need hip or chest waders. This will be an easy to difficult level event with uneven terrain.
    RCWA will provide bags, but please bring along your grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available.
    As with all events shared on RCWA, participation is performed solely at your own risk. Please place safety FIRST and do only what you feel comfortable doing. Moreover, participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver form if they have not done so previously.

    River City Waterway Alliance is co-hosting with Soil Born Farms to help get this beautiful creek clean from litter and debris lining banks and surrounding areas.
    This area is flat and grassy, but will be muddy from the recent rains. The banks of the creek are low and shallow, making this an easy access cleanup for most folks. We will need folks in the water so please bring along your waders if you got ’em. If not, there will be plenty of other trash to tackle.
    Please park and meet at the Soil Born Farms parking lot where we will gather and have our pre-cleanup meeting.
    We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footwear, grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. There might be water in some sections of the cleanup area. Participants will be required to wear rain boots or waders if they intend to get into the water. Entry into any waters is always optional.
