Come Prepared!

Use the checklist below so that you come prepared for creek conditions. Please be prepared to get a little muddy. Many of the clean-up sites may have poison oak.

 

  • Your own drinking water
  • A bucket or re-usable shopping bag to collect light trash (per person)
  • Comfortable, washable clothes
  • Long pants and long sleeves
  • Hat and Sunscreen
  • Gloves (work or gardening type)
  • Shoes that can get wet and muddy
  • Waterproof boots (optional)
  • Grabbing tool or rake (optional)

 

Important:

ALL CHILDREN MUST BE WITH A RESPONSIBLE ADULT as the debris, water, or slippery stream banks may be hazardous.

If you bring a child or group of children, your most important job is to supervise and keep them safe. Collecting trash is secondary for adults in charge of children.

Thank you for making it possible for them to have this experience!
