Since 1991, neighbors and community volunteers have met to collect trash in both East and West Bouldin Creek. While we no longer pull out large appliances, mountains of tires or huge pieces of construction materials, the cleanups are still necessary due to the incredible amount of bottles, cans, plastic bags and Styrofoam containers left behind by inconsiderate visitors or washed down the creeks with each rain. In addition, we are now dealing with remnants of abandoned homeless camps.
We will meet at the entrance to Nicholas Dawson Park, then divide into crews to cover portions of both East and Est Bouldin Creek. If we have enough volunteers, we will also spend some time weeding beds in N Dawson and in Ricky Guerrero Park.
Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please dress in long sleeved shirts and long pants to guard against possible contact with poison ivy and wear sturdy shoes. Be prepared to get muddy and dirty and have a very good time. Kids, dogs and family friends welcome.
