Oakland Creek to Bay Day is part of California and International Coastal Cleanup Day, the largest volunteer day in California and the world.
Join thousands of volunteers to clean and beautify Oakland's creeks, shorelines and Lake Merritt. Volunteers will pick up litter, remove invasive plants, and/or plant California native plants. Please wear long pants and sturdy closed-toed shoes. Individuals can drop in, but groups of ten or more should pre-register with the site coordinator. Learn more and register at www.oaklandcreektobay.org. In 2014, approximately 1,000 Oakland volunteers removed over 500 bags of trash and over 150 cubic yards of invasive weeds from Oakland’s creeks and bay shoreline. Worldwide 560,000 volunteers in 91 countries removed over 16 million pounds of trash along 13,000 miles of beaches and inland waterways.
