Thank YOU, Creek to Bay Day Volunteers!

Oakland Public Works thanks all the volunteers who helped make Oakland’s 22nd annual Creek to Bay Day a success! On Saturday, September 16, 2017, 1,740 volunteers contributed over 5,164 hours removing trash and invasive plants along Oakland’s creeks, shoreline, parks, and streets. Volunteers removed 162 cubic yards of trash and cleared 253 cubic yards of invasive plants at 55 sites throughout Oakland. The most common types of trash removed included cigarette butts, food packaging, and single use plastics (wrappers, bottles, straws, etc.). These efforts protect San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, and help make Oakland cleaner, greener, and stronger.

Do you have great pictures from Creek to Bay Day or other volunteer events? Please send them to adoptaspot at oaklandnet.com.

Adopt a Drain to Prevent Flooding and Water Pollution!

Join our Adopt a Drain volunteer program to keep storm drains in your neighborhood free of debris. By keeping storm drains clear, volunteers can help prevent flooding of streets and sidewalks while allowing the City to focus on critical storm-response activities. Public Works will support volunteer adopters with supplies and debris bags. Remember, “Clear the drain before the rain.”
