Delta Waterways Cleanup
The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy, part of the California Natural Resources Agency, is co-sponsoring a Delta Waterway cleanup on Saturday, April 14th from 9:00 to 12:00 as a part of Creek Week, a program organized by the Sacramento Area Creeks Council. Clean-ups will take place at Lower Morrison Creek/Bufferlands, Sherman Island, Brannan Island State Recreation Area, and Grizzly Island Trail.
The trash that finds its way to the Delta is a serious water pollution problem for both humans and wildlife. At Delta Waterway Cleanups, volunteers actively participate in water stewardship practices by cleaning up trash and preventing it from reaching waterways and ultimately, the ocean. Delta Waterway Cleanups provide a personal experience connecting volunteers with the issue of trash pollution. After participating in a Delta Waterway Cleanup, volunteers recognize first-hand the need to reduce the amount of waste we create, recycle and reuse the waste we do create and dispose of waste properly and thoughtfully.
