Slip on those closed-toe shoes because it’s time for the Wildcat Creek Cleanup at Davis Park in San Pablo Sat., Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
KIDS for the Bay, a nonprofit that provides environmental education to East Bay schools, is leading the cleanup effort alongside the City of San Pablo. Wildcat Creek winds down from Tilden Regional Park to Berkeley, El Cerrito, Richmond and San Pablo, ultimately entering the Pacific Ocean via the San Pablo Bay, per organizers.
The organization said that it started cleaning up the creek 29 years ago along with the City of San Pablo and Dover Elementary. It has continued the cleanup annually by first visiting San Pablo schools to give presentations about creek life and reducing pollution—and following it up by inviting people to join in the effort.
“Since the first cleanup, we have continued this event every year with help from school students and their families,” stated KIDS from the Bay.
Davis Park, where the cleanup will occur, is located at 1667 Folsom Ave. in San Pablo. Learn more here. Questions? Contact Kids for the Bay at (510) 734-3835 or [email protected]. Snacks, water and supplies will be provided by organizers.
