Upper Sand Creek Basin | 6600 Deer Valley Rd, Antioch, CA 94531
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join the Earth Team interns, Supervisor Diane Burgis, the Contra Costa County Flood Control District, Contra Costa Resource Conservation District, and Friends of Marsh Creek as they celebrate Earth Day!
Spend the morning in the beautiful Upper Sand Creek watershed, exploring an area that is usually closed to the public. In 2013, the Flood Control District held the first planting event to celebrate the completion of the detention basin. Come see for yourself how much the basin has changed.
The students will be showing off the skills they’ve learned over the year they spent interning with Earth Team.
Activities will include:
- Trash Talking Showdown – Join a team to see who can pickup, and properly identify, the most trash.
- Help remove invasive species, and plant the volunteer nursery native plants – Since the initial planting in 2013, a lot has changed with the volunteer nursery, but we still need your help to keep it going!
- Learn about water quality sampling, your local creeks and what you can do to keep them clean!
What to Bring:
- Waiver, filled out and signed.
- Sturdy shoes
- Reusable Water Bottle
