Sac Picks It Up – Mather Area Vernal Pool Cleanup

It’s another SPIU/Sacramento Splash cleanup at our area’s precious Vernal Pools, where Sacramento Splash leads public tours!
Join us from 10am-noon on Saturday February 24th!
We’ll remove illegally dumped trash from these otherwise protected and vital seasonally ephemeral pools that are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including endemic flowers, insects and creatures!
BRING: gloves & grabbers & buckets if you have them (we will supply them if not!). We have industrial garbage bags for all.
TERRAIN: mostly flat with some uneven terrain in the grassy areas near the pools. We’ll also clean up trash found on or near the road.
The vernal pools are located NEAR BUT NOT AT Mather Regional Park, located off Highway 50 east of Sacramento.
From HWY 50, take the Zinfandel Dr exit towards Mather Lake but keep driving on Zinfandel until it turns into Eagles Nest Rd.
Keep driving down Eagles Nest Rd until it TURNS FROM A PAVED ROAD INTO A DIRT ROAD and park anywhere around there!
All volunteer activity is performed at your own risk, as always!
