Putah Creek Council is celebrating 31 years of coordinating cleanups on Putah Creek. Since their first cleanup in 1988, a generation of supporters has helped remove large legacy dumps and continued to help clean and properly discard of tens of thousands of pounds of trash along Putah Creek over the last three decades. Garbage continues to find its way into Putah Creek annually, damaging wildlife habitat, polluting the water and making visits to Putah Creek unpleasant for visitors. Since 2004, the group has held their annual Putah Creek Cleanup in partnership with the California Coastal Commission on California Coastal Cleanup Day, which also coincides with International Coastal Cleanup Day. Volunteers participating on Saturday, Sept. 21 will be part of the largest single-day volunteer event on the planet. Thanks to funding from the Solano County Water Agency and the City of Winters, Putah Creek Council will coordinate several cleanup crews at sites on Putah Creek from Stevenson Bridge to Winters Putah Creek Nature Park. Because they need to have the correct amount of supplies and extra water at each site and also provide lunch after the cleanup, registration for the cleanup is required. Register at this link: 2019 Putah Creek Cleanup Day Registration. On the morning of the cleanup, the group will gather in Rotary Park in Winters and spread out to cleanup sites from there. Cleanup sites include Stevenson Bridge in Davis, Winters Putah Creek Nature Park, Putah Creek Road from Railroad Avenue to downstream of the I-505 overcrossing and Dry Creek.
