RCWA is once again partnering with Arcade Creek Adopt-A-Creek Project to clean Arcade Creek through Del Paso Regional Park.
Having completed the heavy cleaning of this beautiful one mile stretch of Arcade Creek last August, we will be tackling the last dam of trash and debris washed downstream over the winter. This area is full of natural filters that have stopped a substantial amount of trash from being swept downstream and into the Delta and beyond. But that leaves a lot of cleanup work to rid this beautiful park of the resulting debris fields of trash.
This event will range in difficulty from easy to difficult, with some pretty easy pickins’ around the flat grassy parkway.
RCWA 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. Recommended (but not required): rain boots – there is water in some sections of the creek, though it can be avoided if careful. Please cover up because poison oak is present.
As with all events shared by 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.
Overall, be safe, have fun and get some “Exercise with a Purpose” as Bill Templin always says!
