We had a great day Saturday October 2nd. 25 people including park staff got sooo much done I can’t believe it. We cleaned more area than I could ever have dreamed of. We cleaned 2 of the biggest messes in the whole mile I have committed to cleaning up. Save the American River Association (SARA) came thru at the end with a few extra volunteers. The longtime camper was inspired to clean his camp that day. We left him with some bags and told him he could add to our huge pile. It is good to make contact with a friendly camper. The unknown is scary. In my adopted mile there two other camps that I know of. They are down by the island near our last big group cleanup. I will be focusing on that area next. Thank you everyone for your support A real big shout out to Facebook group “Sacramento Picks It Up!” Lots of real hardworking experienced volunteers. What dedication. Remember this group, they are working miracles all over Sacramento. Sunday we are cleaning the Tower Bridge water front. I plan another cleanup in two weeks to finish the areas after the bobcat picks up the piles. (See below for updates on upcoming cleanups)
Heads up! On Oct 16 I will be teaming up with Facebook group “Sacramento Picks It Up”, "Friends of Sutter’s Landing" and the American River Parkway Foundation (ARPF) for my next cleanup. We will be doing it right this time and filing waivers, and trash reports. We will be in the same location cleaning up after the bobcats in our last location, and new areas nearby. I think I will be able to get permission to drive close to the cleanup site like last time.
To date I am responsible for removing over 10 TONS of trash from the Woodlake area this summer. The area is so beautiful without all the trash. WE CAN GET THIS DONE THIS YEAR. With your help.
“Sacramento Picks It Up” will also be doing Tower Bridge 3.0 Cleanup on Oct 30. The Coastal Cleanup asked for our help on cleanup day. We went back last week for 2.0 last Sunday after our BIG Woodlake cleanup Saturday.
