I Love A Clean San Diego’s (ILACSD) 16th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup drew approximately 6,000 volunteers to 113 cleanup sites around San Diego County in late April. During the three-hour cleanup, volunteers across the county removed more than 175,000 pounds of trash and debris, helping to enhance the overall health and beauty of San Diego’s natural environment. Volunteers participated in beautification projects such as painting park structures, planting native trees and plants, mulching, and weeding. Participants also showcased their zero waste commitments this year in the “Rocking Reusables” Sony Photo Contest.

Creek to Bay is one of two annual county-wide cleanups and hundreds of specific local cleanups hosted by ILACSD each year. Learn more at www.ilacsd.org.
