Ballona Creek Renaissance (BCR) will host its second creek cleanup at Centinela Avenue this Saturday, January 28, 9am-noon. Register with BCR at this special Ballona Gateway and native plant mini-park at the northwest corner of the Centinela Ave./Ballona Creek crossing in the Del Rey neighborhood, west of Culver City. A warm sunny day is expected. In the unlikely event of rain, the cleanup will be moved to February 4.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome for this fun and worthwhile activity. And it’s a great way for students to earn community service credits. Waivers are required: As with all creek and coastal cleanups, participants under 18 need waiver forms signed by their parents or guardians (available on-site or online at www.ballonacreek.org). Adult volunteers also need to sign waivers.
This BCR cleanup, made possible by a permit from the County of Los Angeles, is co-sponsored by Councilman Bill Rosendahl, LA City.Office of Community Beautification, and the Del Rey Neighborhood Council.
