How-To

 Traditional Sacramento Area Creeks Council Creek Week clean-up sites are shown on the map. 

Sacramento Area Creeks Council encourages  communities and stewardship groups in  Sacramento County to organize their own creek clean-ups. We can help you get started by supplying how-to information and equipment.

 

Random Acts of Clean-up

Find a partner and pick up some garbage

Dates: Any day you choose.

Check our volunteer pages for suggested creek spots or choose somewhere near your home that could use some trash clean-up. Now the rains have started, clean-ups are restricted to trails and developed areas. Creek banks are unsafe during the rainy season. 

Registration not required

Report your clean-up results and receive a Creek Week thank you!
