RCWA – Steelhead Creek Cleanup @ El Camino (West Side)

With rains already starting, we have decided to double-up on Steelhead Creek cleanups (2 events each week for at least the next two weeks – Weds and Sats). We will continue working downstream from El Camino Avenue along the west bank which we are finding is saturated with trash and encampment debris (see our cleanup post from 11/1/23 for illustration). We will nab as much shoreline trash and encampment debris as possible before it is washed away and/or buried under silt.
We will meet at the southwest levee gate of Steelhead Creek at West El Camino, near where we have met before. We will then park nearby on the levee.
We are continuing our work with Friends of Steelhead Creek stewards Roland Brady and Crystal Tobias to clean poor, trashed creek.
Please come out and help with this project. We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footwear, grabbers, buckets, gloves, and hats – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. Entry into the water is always optional.
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.
Overall, be safe, have fun, and get some “Exercise with a Purpose” as Bill Templin always says!
Thank you!💚
