Annual Coastal Cleanup Day Set for September 17
KING CITY, CA…The Monterey Ranger District of the Los Padres National Forest is partnering with Save Our Shores again this year to coordinate a cleanup on the Arroyo Seco River. This event will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2011, from 9 am until noon. Cleanup Day is open to volunteers of all ages, and those who would like to participate should meet at the Day Use Parking Lot of the Arroyo Seco Recreation Area at 8:30 am.
Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and sleeves, sturdy shoes, and work gloves as a safety precaution while working in the wooded areas. Volunteers interested in working along the river bank may want to wear rubber boots or water shoes and be prepared to get wet. Please bring a refillable water bottle. Garbage bags will be provided on site.
“This is a great opportunity for community members and those who enjoy spending time on the Arroyo Seco River to join with the Los Padres National Forest and Save our Shores to help keep this amazing recreation area clean and beautiful,” said Monterey District Ranger Sherry Tune.
