Register to Lead a Volunteer Project on Creek to Bay Day, September 16th!

We are seeking site coordinators to lead cleaning and greening projects for the 22nd Annual Oakland Creek to Bay Day, Saturday, September 16th.  Oakland Creek to Bay Day is part of California and International Coastal Cleanup Day, the largest volunteer day in California and the world!

Projects include litter removal, habitat restoration, urban greening, and beautification.  Many Creek to Bay Day projects occur in creeks and along shorelines, though off-water sites are equally important for protecting waterways, as shown by this infographic<http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTcwNzIxLjc2MTg3MjExJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE3MDcyMS43NjE4NzIxMSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3MjI0MzM1JmVtYWlsaWQ9ZG1pbGlhbi1jYXZlbmVjaWFAb2FrbGFuZG5ldC5jb20mdXNlcmlkPWRtaWxpYW4tY2F2ZW5lY2lhQG9ha2xhbmRuZXQuY29tJmZsPSZleHRyYT1NdWx0aXZhcmlhdGVJZD0mJiY=&&&100&&&http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca1/groups/pwa/documents/image/oak049259.pdf>.
