Carmichael and Arden Arcade

2020 Volunteer Registration is closed and Creek Week is cancelled due to COVID-19 directives.

We are exploring the possibility of doing Creek Week in the fall. If that’s not feasible, we will be back in 2021.

In the meantime, keep this in mind: Please reduce your plastic waste.

We can all make a difference by practicing random acts of cleanup.

If everyone picked up one extra piece of trash each day, our impact would be even greater.

Stay healthy!

 

Public clean-up sites in Carmichael
and Arden Arcade are listed below.

 

Review the site descriptions and check the map links to select your site.

Then click the “Volunteer”  button to register.

 

Please review the Volunteer Checklist to the left so you arrive prepared!

Once you register, our administrative volunteers may contact you to confirm your clean-up site location, provide you with additional instructions, or answer any questions you may have.  You may be reassigned to a location as space allows.

If you have registered for a group, please forward our Volunteer Waiver to your members or their parents or guardians.

Please report at 9:00am sharp on Saturday, April 18th to your confirmed clean-up site. Your team leader will provide you with instructions, garbage bags and help get you started.
