The City Of Oakland has its Earth Day Volunteers Clean And Green Oakland Program. Here’s the release about it.

Oakland, CA – On Saturday, April 20, thousands of volunteers will clean and green over 80 Oakland locations at the 25th Annual Oakland Earth Day. Approximately 50 sites are in parks, open spaces, or along creeks and other waterways, and approximately 35 sites will be neighborhood cleanups of streets, sidewalks, and schools. Volunteers will pick up litter, remove graffiti, weed and plant, and restore native plant habitat. Oakland Public Works sponsors this event, with support from the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, and participation of more than 70 community groups, including Friends of Sausal Creek, Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation, Keep Oakland Beautiful, and Communities for a Better Environment.

Bushrod Recreation Center Director George Henderson participates in city-wide cleanups year-round “because it brings community together from all walks of life. We want to do our part in the community; we do this by being an example while sprucing up and showing our love.”

Groups and individuals of all ages and abilities are invited to join. All tools are provided. The sites listed below can accommodate large groups. Groups of 10 or more should RSVP with the project site coordinator. Individuals and small groups are encouraged, but not required, to RSVP.
