    Upcoming Creek Cleanup Events

    None currently-but check back as this gets updated frequently. In the meantime, why not organize a clean up on your school campus?

    The Schoolyard Cleanup Program  developed by the California Coastal Commission provides curricular resources and tips for carrying out a successful cleanup while at the same time integrating Next Generation Science Standards.  

    If using cellphones is an option, check out the smartphone app Litterati that allows students to use their phones to catalog common trash they pick-up and upload it into a worldwide trash dataset-in effect “crowdsourcing-cleaning the planet.” Click here to watch a TED talk by the creator of Litterati, Jeff Kirschner.  Extend the lesson to help students find ways of reducing, reusing and recycling.
