Creeks, shorelines, parks and other spaces in West Contra Costa will get special care at Earth Day events on April 19 and 26 and as always, the community is encouraged to take part.
Here is a list of events:
The city and co-host The Watershed Project will provide tools and gloves, but if you have your own gloves and bucket, be sure to bring them, along with a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. The cleanup will include free refreshments and a chance to make art from collected objects.
Sponsors include Citizens for East Shore Parks and the East Bay Regional Park District.

Volunteers can register at either site at 9 a.m., should wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and are encouraged to bring work gloves and a reusable water bottle. Sponsors will provide volunteers with free light breakfast and lunch.
