Annual Santa Margarita Creek Clearing Project
It’s time again for the annual clearing of Yerba Buena Creek… our 14th year!
Keep the rain water flowing through the creek and prevent flooding. Yeah FLOODING…. it’s been a while, but you know it happens!
Meet up with your neighbors down in the creek to clear out the fallen wood and reeds before the rains come. If you haven’t volunteered with the project before then you are in for a treat!!!!! Lots of work and laughs followed up with a shared lunch: homemade pulled pork sandwiches and slaw!
When: Saturday, October 13th, 8:15am until around noon.
Where: Meet at Santa Margarita Community Park next to Hwy 58 for orientation and morning coffee
What to wear: long pants and long sleeved shirts, sturdy shoes and work gloves (a must!), sunblock and don’t forget a hat
What to bring: yourself and your neighbors… volunteers always needed
If you know of a community group that may be interested in helping with this Santa Margarita project please send us contact information.
Please take a moment to drop a quick RSVP so we have a rough idea of how many volunteers we can expect. And share with your neighbors, especially neighbors who live along the creek or in the flood zone… we need their help!!!!!
If you are unable to help in person you can always make a small donation to the project to help with costs…. or cookies for the volunteers would be nice 🙂
