Looking for a way to celebrate Earth Day and do something good for the environment? Join Santa Barbara Channelkeeper’s Watershed Brigade the weekend of April 24-25 for a dispersed clean-up event targeting front country trails and trailhead areas.
Channelkeeper’s Watershed Brigade is a community of volunteers dedicated to keeping our local watersheds and beaches clean. Brigade members remove trash from trails, creeks, rivers, urban areas, and beaches, act as environmental stewards, and collect litter data used to help reduce pollution at its source. And it’s fun! By sharing their photos, volunteers earn points that make them eligible for perks and prizes.
The goal over the weekend of April 24-25 is to clean trails and turnouts throughout Santa Barbara, Ojai, and Ventura. Volunteers will head out independently to different trailheads, front country parking areas, and trails along the South Coast to remove trash. We’ve created a sign-up form to ensure that we cover as many trail areas as possible.
Earth Day is April 22, and while this year’s celebration is virtual, the Watershed Brigade invites you to complement the online festivities by heading outdoors to clean up trash. Making sure that our environment is litter-free is a great way to honor the Earth while supporting Channelkeeper’s goal to make water swimmable, fishable, and drinkable for all.
Help us achieve this by signing up to clean a trail area in our watershed this weekend. Visit https://www.sbck.org/brigade/watershed-brigade-event/ for information or to sign up!
