Claremont gets down and dirty for Temescal Creek cleanup

on September 22, 2009

Every year, over fifteen hundred volunteers fan out into Oakland’s 25 creeks and waterways as part of the international Creek to Bay Day. On September 19, residents of the Temescal Creek neighborhood came together to pick up trash, remove invasive plants and restore native vegetation, allowing their unique natural resource to continue flowing freely.
