Thank you to all of our Creek to Bay 2016 volunteers!
Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers and site captains! We are still crunching some numbers but we know that more than 6,000 volunteers came out to our 110 sites and successfully removed 150,000 lbs. of litter. Instead of turning a blind eye to the abundance of litter found across San Diego County, our volunteers channeled their appreciation for San Diego’s environment into action to protect it. During this three-hour event, volunteers significantly improved the health and beauty of San Diego’s natural environment by removing more than 150,000 pounds of trash and pollutants.
Creek to Bay is one of hundreds of cleanups hosted by ILACSD. In 2015, ILACSD mobilized over 32,000 volunteers who removed half a million pounds of debris from San Diego County. ILACSD’s second countywide cleanup of the year, Coastal Cleanup Day, is scheduled for Saturday, September 17th this year. For more information about how to get involved, please visit CleanSD.org.
