Brea continues to partner in the Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day through the Inner Coastal Cleanup program. Residents are invited to volunteer for cleaning up the Brea Creek Channel on Saturday, September 17, between 8:00 to 11 a.m. The Brea Creek Channel is located at the end of Mercury Lane, which is about a block north of Imperial Highway/Berry Street.
Each year, many tons of trash and debris is removed from local watershed areas where it accumulates from urban runoff. Future downstream pollution is thus reduced prior to the coming rainy season. Students can earn service hours for their work and all residents can feel good about directly participating with beautification efforts as part of this important initiative.
Please plan ahead to help. Wear sturdy shoes and bring work gloves, hats and sunscreen. Volunteers will be asked to sign a waiver as they check-in to work.
