River City Waterway Alliance – Steelhead Creek Cleanup @ W. El Camino

Location: 201 W El Camino Ave, Sacramento, CA 95833


We are excited to again join Friends of Steelhead Creek (Dr. Roland Brady and Crystal Tobias) to resume cleaning this super trashed section of their adopted spot.
We will meet at the levee gate on the WEST side of Steelhead Creek (same as our last few cleanups of this area). PLEASE be on time (early ok) since we have to lock the gate behind us. At 9:00 a.m. SHARP, we will caravan onto the levee and proceed to the cleanup site. Late comers will not be accommodated. Folks that might need to leave early are welcome.
We’ll park along the levee road, so will be in sight of our vehicles the entire time. The work site is on the west bank of Steelhead Creek near the “Peninsula” where volunteers have removed over 68,000 lbs of trash during the last 5 cleanups at this location.
The event will range in difficulty from easy to very advanced and is not be suitable for children under the age of 16. There will be plenty of hard-core badgering (digging out the big stuff), but also lots of easy detail work along the flat floodplain above the creek.
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. As there is water in the creek, 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.
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! 💚
This series of cleanups are organized by RCWA, Dr. Roland Brady, Crystal Tobias, Rich Muhl from the Water Quality Control Board, and Tony Decastillo and Gabe Holleman of RD 1000. Thank you all!
Thank you!💚
