RCWA – Ali’s Friday Crk Cleanup

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 once again meet at Herzog’s Surgical, and will work upstream towards Hidden Oaks Apartments where we we previously performed 11 cleanups this year. This is our last untouched section in our quest to clean the 5 mile stretch from the Capitol City freeway all the way upstream to the Citrus Heights city line.
We will park in the back near the gate and walk to Arcade Creek. Please arrive on time as the complex is somewhat expansive and the route to our meeting spot could be confusing.
Please bring LOTS of water or other hydration 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! 💚
