Sunday, April 30
9 am – 1 pm
A small, unnamed creek in the Upper Sespe Creek Watershed has been experiencing litter from illegal target shooting for years. While not as bad as Cherry Creek used to be before it was closed to target shooting, we still want to do some spring cleaning to get the trash removed from this area close to the Sespe Wilderness. We will have all the supplies you need, including snacks and water. There will even be a few door prizes! We’ll be meeting in Ojai to carpool to the site, which is just 30 minutes north of town. If you’re interested in signing up, email Bryant or call him at 805-617-4610 ext 3.

It’s already time to clean up trash again in Santa Paula Canyon. This area is one of the most popular locales in the Los Padres National Forest, and this year’s rains helped make it even more popular with beautiful running waterfalls. This will be a trail hike/cleanup, so be prepared to walk a few miles into the canyon. We will have all the supplies you need, including snacks and water. There will even be a few door prizes! If you’re interested in helping out at this site, which is between Ojai and Santa Paula on Hwy 150, email Bryant or call him at 805-617-4610 ext 3.

We’re putting a team together to help UCSB Adventure Programs, Santa Barbara Rock Gym, and the Forest Service with the spring Lizard’s Mouth Cleanup! This is a popular area in the mountains above Santa Barbara. We’ll be meeting along W. Camino Cielo Rd (click here for a map) before fanning out to clean up trash around the rocky outcrop so many people love to visit. If you’re interested in joining the team, email Bryant or call him at 805-617-4610 ext 3.
