Ballona Creek Cleanup Scheduled

Access 11 will partner with Ballona Creek Renaissance on the next Ballona Creek Cleanup on Saturday, February 8 from 9 am to noon at

Centinela Ave. at Milton St. between Culver Blvd. and the I-90/Marina Freeway

BCR welcomes the partnership and hands-on participation of LA Councilman Mike Bonin, staff, and volunteers as part of his Access 11 community outreach program.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome in this activity where the inland water and incoming tide meet, a special place of fish, birds, plants---yet there is still too much trash and concrete.

It’s a great way for students to earn community service credits. As with all creek and coastal cleanups, participants under 18 need waiver forms signed by their parent or guardian, available either on-site or online at www.ballonacreek.org.

Adult volunteers also need to sign waivers.

Wear closed-toed shoes (preferably water-resistant) and sunscreen. Bring your own water in a reusable container.

Water also will be available at the event, along with bags, grabbers, gloves, buckets, and educational displays. For more details, visit BCR’s website below.

BCR’s Centinela Avenue creek cleanups are made possible by the ongoing support and permission of LA County Public Works/Flood

Control District and LA City Council District 11/Councilman Mike Bonin and the active co-sponsorship of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council and LA City Office of Community Beautification.
