For the 15th consecutive year the Cache Creek Conservancy is managing Yolo County’s “Coast and Creek Cleanup Day.” This year’s event in the Woodland area takes place Saturday, September 17, from 9:00 AM until noon at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve, 34199 County Road 20. 

People are encouraged to volunteer a few hours that morning to help pick up litter and trash. The Coast and Creek Cleanup Day is a great event to involve families in caring for and protecting their local waterways. It is also an opportunity for students to earn community services hours by helping to clean up trash in their local communities. Youth groups are especially encouraged to participate.

Watch for more details.
