KOB came out in full force at two clean up sites to boost Oakland’s clean up efforts in the Battle for the Bay - Creek to Bay Day event. Our clean up at Cesar Chavez Park had more than 50 volunteers picking up trash from the park and playground areas. Volunteers also removed scrap metal, glass and plastic bottles, clothes, a scooter, a sofa section and two dolls from the day-lighted section of Peralta Creek that runs through the park. Through our pick up efforts we are happy to report that we prevented 21 bags worth of trash from ending up in our creeks and shorelines.
Over 60 people showed up at our Jingletown site and their hard work made a huge impact to that area. In just a few hours, Volunteers picked up 25 bags worth of trash and filled over 100 bags of green waste! Thanks to all who pitched in and came out to make our Creek to Bay Day a smashing success!
