San Diego‘s largest one-day environmental volunteer effort during Earth Month returns on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to noon, with thousands of volunteers expected at nearly 100 cleanup sites.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY (March, 2024) – I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) is set to host the 22nd annual Creek to Bay Cleanup on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The event is the region’s largest one-day environmental volunteer effort in celebration of Earth Month, with nearly 100 cleanup sites around the county. I Love A Clean San Diego expects thousands of volunteers of all ages to participate. Registration opens on Monday, April 1, at cleansd.org/creektobay.

San Diegans can play a critical role in preserving the health of our environment since all San Diego County residents live in one of 11 watersheds that lead to our bays, beaches, and ocean. Residents in inland areas are strongly encouraged to participate and be the first line of defense in diverting litter from entering our waterways due to the fact that about 80 percent of all marine debris begins in inland areas. When litter enters our local watersheds, it flows downstream and into the Pacific Ocean, becoming a harmful threat to the health of both marine wildlife and residents.

Last year, Creek to Bay volunteers diverted nearly 50 tons of litter and debris from communities across the county. Individuals, families, and corporate and community groups can register to volunteer. Volunteers can visit cleansd.org/creektobaybeginning on Monday, April 1, to find the list of the nearly 100 sites throughout San Diego and locate a site near them.

Presenting, Gold, and Silver Partners of the 2024 Creek to Bay Cleanup Think Blue San Diego, Bank of America, County of San Diego and its Watershed Protection Program, Cox Communications, Project Clean Water, Wells Fargo, San Diego Port Authority, Airport Authority, Illumina, Sempra Infrastructure, Sony Electronics, and Jack in the Box Foundation.

About I Love A Clean San Diego: Celebrating 70 years in 2024, I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) is an environmental nonprofit supporting residents and businesses of San Diego County. ILACSD was founded in 1954 as the San Diego War Against Litter Committee (WALC), in the 1970s, “I Love A Clean San Diego” became the slogan for the organization’s anti-litter campaign, and in 1980, it became the organization’s name. Over the last seven decades, ILACSD has since evolved into the nonprofit it is today, providing programs that go far beyond litter cleanups and serve as environmental catalysts. Our programs inspire and empower San Diegans to be environmental and waste-free living leaders in their communities. For more information, to volunteer, or to make a gift, visit CleanSD.org or call (619) 291-0103.
