Trash Bash at Walnut Creek

Due to the recent rain and likely thunderstorms on Saturday, September 8, the Trash Bash at Walnut Creek will be postponed until Saturday, November 10th. This decision was made with the safety of our volunteers in mind.

The Trash Bash at Walnut Creek is a two-part cleanup. Volunteers may register to pick up litter while exploring either the Walnut Creek Hiking Trail or the Walnut Creek Paddling Trail.

9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Trash Bash - volunteer opportunity
