GreenTown Los Altos

Creek Cleaning Catch? A Chair!


May 2016



What a catch!








On Sat., May 22,  a group of 25 GreenTown Los Altos volunteers joined with thousands ofvolunteers throughout the U.S. for National River Cleanup Day. Each location gets different “surprises” as they make our waters healthier.

At Permanente Creek, Heritage Oaks Park, we removed a sodden office chair by tying a rope to it and having Mountain View Girl Scout troop 61173 form a line to haul it up.

In total, we removed 76 pounds of trash. 15 pounds of that was recycled and 2 pounds composted. A big thanks to all the volunteers.

Our next creek cleanup is scheduled for Sept. 17, 2016, National Coastal Cleanup Day. Email us at for more info as the date approaches. We hope to see you there!
