Saturday, September 15 2018 is the 10th Annual Putah Creek Cleanup Day. The event coincides with the Annual International Coastal Cleanup Day. For more information on the International Coastal Cleanup Day click HERE.
Putah Creek Trout has hosted the cleanup of the Inter-dam reach between Fishing Access 5 and Monticello Dam for the past 9 years. This is the third year that the Fly Fishers of Davis has been our partner with the cleanup.
We need 25-30 volunteers to spread out over the reach in small teams to collect trash and recyclables. Last year we had 25 volunteers collect over 600 pounds of trash, 90 pounds of recyclables, 2 tires, ½ kayak, a small refrigerator, and 4 rusted out barrels. This year a dump site near Fishing Access 5 has been discovered
It is a great way to get involved with your community and an excellent way to show your kids how to get involved and make their local environment a better place. Children are very welcome. Children under 12 yrs must have adult accompany them.
Fly Fishers of Davis will be sponsoring the lunch after the event.
