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.
Public clean-up sites in South Sacramento County are listed below. Review the site descriptions and check the map links to select your site.
Then click the site’s “Volunteer” button to register.
Your information will be sent to our administrative volunteers who 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.
Please review the checklist to the left to come prepared.
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.
If you have registered for a group, please forward our Volunteer Waiver to your members or their parents or guardians.

Because the banks are steep and water can be deep here, most of the cleaning will be along the levee trail and very top of the banks. Park in the parking lot close to the ball field and Logan Street bridge. Snacks and water will be provided. No groups of more than 5 from outside the neighborhood, please. Sacramento City Parks waiver for adults and youth is required in addition to Creek Week registration.
