Youth education and community outreach are essential to the long-term success of the Creeks Division’s efforts to restore creeks and improve water quality. It's up to each of us to help keep our creeks and beaches clean!
The community is invited to participate in creek and beach clean-ups, the California Coastal Commission's Adopt-a-Beach program, native planting days, the annual Creek Week celebration, and more!
The Creeks Division also provides informational tables at local events including the Earth Day Festival, the Harbor & Seafood Festival, and others.
Youth watershed education programs and field trips are provided to local schools at no cost through Explore Ecology (a program of Art From Scrap), or by special arrangement with Creeks Division staff.
Explore Ecology programs include in-class presentations and trips to the Watershed Resource Center at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park. To schedule a presentation for your class, contact Explore Ecology directly at (805) 884-0459 x16.
Interested community members are invited to attend monthly Creeks Advisory Committee meetings, watch them on City TV or online, and apply to serve on the Committee to help assist and advise staff, the Parks and Recreation Commission, and City Council on Creeks Division projects and programs.
