Topanga Creek Stream Team Earth Day Celebration
April 5, 2012 -
As part of Earth Day 2012 celebration, the Topanga Creek Stream Team is seeking volunteers to help with the continuing cleanup and restoration effort of the 12-acre floodplain and creek channel in Lower Topanga Creek. The cleanup will occur on Saturday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to noon on the site of the former Rodeo Grounds.
Participants will meet at the entrance gate on Topanga Canyon Boulevard, located approximately 500 yards up from the intersection with Pacific Coast Highway. Park along the shoulder of Topanga Canyon Boulevard or at the Topanga Ranch Motel.
Come help with the continued restoration of the 12-acre floodplain and creek channel in Lower Topanga Creek. Weed removal and planting will continue through the spring.
Shoes that can get wet and muddy, as well as long pants and gloves are recommended. Bring work gloves and tools like pitchforks for removing arundo, loppers for cutting ivy and willow stakes, anything that will help dig out invasive weeds would be a great addition. We do have some tools to share for those without their own.
Students under 18 years old need to have a parent sign the volunteer form! Community service credit provided!
Volunteers get into the Topanga Earth Day Festival that weekend at the Community House FREE!
Organized by the Topanga Creek Stream Team, CA State Parks, RCDSMM, Temescal Canyon Association, Sierra Club Trails Crew.
