19th Annual Wildcat Creek Clean-Up Event a Great Success!

Wildcat clean-upOn October 12, 2013, children, parents and local school teachers joined KIDS for the BAY and the City of San Pablo to help clean up Wildcat Creek, which flows through Davis Park on its way to the San Francisco Bay. This event, originally begun by a class of third grade students from Dover Elementary School in San Pablo, as part of their KIDS for the BAY Watershed Action Program, brings the community together every year to take care of their local creek and park environment.

“It’s always a blast to come here and pick up litter with my students!”Wildcat clean-up – Laura Larson, Teacher, Helms Middle School, San Pablo

“This was so much fun! How do I do this again? Maybe all of the Helms Middle School science classes could take a field trip to Wildcat Creek to clean it up.” – Eliana, Student, Helms Middle School, San Pablo

Garbage items collected from Wildcat Creek during the Clean-Up Event included: 20 large bags of garbage, 1 tire, some construction debris, a computer, wires, a vacuum cleaner, spray paint cans and motor oil containers – Wildcat clean-upthe creek and the bay will definitely be cleaner without these items flowing through the watershed!

Thank you to all the Inspired Environmentalists who volunteered their time to clean up Wildcat Creek in their community!
