Annual Haskell Creek Clean-Up — If We Don’t Do it, It Won’t Get Done

September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Haskell Creek at this time of year is a sorry sight. Full of plastic,  evidence that too many folks don't care what they throw on the ground or where it ends up. 

That's the depressing part. The happy part is that in three short hours on Saturday the 17th of September, a crew of dedicated people who aren't afraid to get their hands and feet wet will make Haskell Creek look like...a creek. A stream. Right here in the middle of Los Angeles. Amazing.

Please be there. Nine o'clock on a Saturday is not torture. Bring water shoes or boots. Bring a grabber if you have one. Gloves. It's work, and it's a little messy, but it isn't gross. It's fun, and the result is something to be very proud of. 

Help Haskell Creek stay ahead of the plastic bags, milk cartons, six-pack rings and other stuff.

With all the divisiveness in our country right now, you'll enjoy spending three hours with people you agree with: urban creeks are worth protecting!

 

Directions: Exit the San Diego Freeway (I-405) on Burbank Blvd. Go west about one-half mile to Woodley Avenue and turn right (north). Travel about one-half mile to the second possible right turn (at sign for the Water Reclamation Plant and Japanese Garden). Turn right and go east about one-half mile to Wildlife Area parking at the end of the road. There is also parking along the road on the left after you pass the cricket fields.
