Bidwell Park & Chico Creeks Cleanup

Each year, Butte Environmental Council teams up with the City of Chico, Butte County and the Great Sierra River Cleanup to organize over 500 community volunteers to remove TONS of trash, recyclables, and hazardous waste from our creeks and beloved Bidwell Park. Last year, we were able to remove a total of 43,403 lbs (21.48 TONS) of harmful material from our environment. This two-day cleanup event goes down as the largest cleanup in BEC history and the City of Chico. This legacy BEC event, in its 34th year, provides the opportunity for our community to work together towards a common goal; protecting our shared natural spaces and waterways. Without regular removal of man-made waste and debris, the water quality of local creeks, channels and streams would be greatly impacted. Local flora and fauna depend on riparian habitats for survival and lack of care for these corridors negatively affect their ability to thrive. Curious about how much waste BEC has actually removed in 32 years? CLICK HERE to see our totals report.
