Join hundreds of volunteers in this effort to remove thousands of pounds of garbage and recyclables from our beloved parks & creeks.
Saturday, September 19, 2015
Hundreds of volunteers will gather at two locations:
BEC has joined with the City of Chico to hold these community cleanups since 1986 to keep our parks and creeks beautiful. “It is so satisfying to see all the garbage and recyclables pulled out of the creeks and park every year” says Robyn DiFalco, BEC’s executive director.
Over the years BEC volunteers have pulled 7 tons of recyclables, 14 tons of scrap metal and 77 tons of garbage out of the park and creeks.
Help BEC get the creeks ready for the upcoming rainy season. BEC is seeking volunteers to help with the planning process, as well as for the day of the event. Make it a fun day by inviting family, friends or coworkers to form a team.
Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Bring gloves and a water bottle, water will be available. All volunteers will be treated to a free BBQ afterwards and there will be a raffle with some great prizes (must be present to win).
