Oakland, CA – On today, Saturday, April 21st, Oakland will hold its largest annual volunteer cleaning and greening event, Oakland Earth Day. Over 3,000 volunteers are anticipated at 115 locations to pick up litter, remove graffiti, weed, mulch, and restore native plant habitat.
Approximately Oakland 70 sites are in parks or along creeks and other waterways, and about 40 sites will be neighborhood cleanups of streets, sidewalks and schools. Oakland Public Works sponsors the event, with support from the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, and participation of more than 90 community groups including Friends of Sausal Creek, Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation, Keep Oakland Beautiful, and the Unity Council.
