Community Kids Cleaned The Creek. Woohoo!

In “normal” times, GreenTown Los Altos organizes two large volunteer cleanups of Permanente

Creek each year—alas these are not “normal” times. With COVID-19 restrictions on large group

gatherings, this year’s strategy had to be different.


Instead of participating in a single nationwide cleanup day as part of the National Coastal Cleanup 2020, we were encouraged to work individually or in small groups to protect our waterways by cleaning up trash and debris in our own neighborhoods, i.e., the watershed areas


We reached out to our volunteers, and were thrilled to learn that many of our young environmental protectors answered the call!


With masks on and arms ready to lug whatever was found, we had several boys from SLOB, the Service League of Boys participate, and many girls fromat least three Girl Scout Troops who volunteered as well. What a difference they made!


THANK YOU TO ALL THESE YOUNG LOS ALTOS ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS! You're inspiring!
