Up a creek, literally! GreenTown will host a tour and cleanup of it’s newly-adopted section of Permanente Creek on Saturday, May 21, 9am-noon. As part of National Rivers Cleanup Day, volunteers will set out to explore both natural and not-so-natural sections of Permanente Creek, cleaning up as we go. Sign up for this free event at: http://permanentecreek.eventbrite.com/
We will meet at Heritage Oaks Park on the corner of Portland Ave. and Miramonte. This will be a great opportunity to see and learn about the channel (which is normally inaccessible behind fencing). Plus, it will give us a chance to establish how much trash is typically in our section of the creek. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. All participants must sign a waiver and children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteer information and a liability waiver can be found here.
