Haskell Creek Cleanup – CANCELED

Saturday, April 22, 2023 - 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

This event has passed. Check out the Event Calendar for upcoming events.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Haskell Creek cleanup has been cancelled.
Look out for a summer cleanup with SFVAS.


Haskell Creek, where it runs through Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, hosts many riparian trees and shrubs, such as cottonwoods and willows.  Songbirds forage and nest in the trees, while egrets and herons fish in this heart of the Wildlife Area.  The needed winter rains brought a huge trash infestation.  Please help clean up the mess, restoring our lovely creek! 

Equipment and Clothing:  You will get muddy and maybe wet.  Please wear rugged clothing and shoes or rubber boots.  If you have them, bring work gloves and long-handled tools to reach trash.  We have trash bags and a limited supply of other equipment for you to use.
