Volunteers clean up the creek

 

Volunteers turned out in force at San Francisquito Creek, the local site for the state-wide Coastal Clean Up Day on Saturday (Sept. 17).

The annual clean-up day is California's No. 1 volunteer event, according to Arnie Thompson, watershed project director at Acterra.

Although called "Coastal," the clean-up efforts took place at inland sites all over the state, including in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
