Oakland’s 25th annual Creek to Bay Day is now Creek to Bay Month!

Due to COVID-19, we’re spreading out cleanups throughout the month. You and your household are invited to pitch in to clean up neighborhoods, parks and creeks, and to take water conservation and protection pledges and actions from home. Make a difference for the health of our local creeks, Lake Merritt and the San Francisco Bay! Water conservation and protection can also save money and improve home health.

Visit oaklandcreektobay.org to take the #OaktownPROUD Pledge.
