BEC’s Annual Park & Creeks Cleanup
The Butte Environmental Council (BEC) and the City of Chico are gearing up for the annual Bidwell Park & Chico Creeks Cleanup on Saturday, September 15, 2012. Last year over 200 volunteers helped with this cleanup effort, resulting in several tons of garbage and recyclables being pulled from the park and creeks.
BEC has joined with the City of Chico to hold these community cleanups for over 15 years to keep our parks and creeks beautiful. “It is so satisfying to see all the garbage and recyclables pulled out of the creeks and park every year” says Robyn DiFalco, BEC’s executive director. Over the years since 1995, BEC volunteers have pulled 7 tons of recyclables, 14 tons of scrap metal and 77 tons of garbage out of the park and creeks.
Volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Bring gloves and a water bottle, BEC will provide water. All volunteers will be treated to a free BBQ afterwards and there will be a raffle with some great prizes (all volunteers are entered automatically).
Help BEC get the creeks ready for the upcoming rainy season. BEC is seeking volunteers to help with the planning process, as well as for the day of the event. Make it a fun day by inviting family, friends or coworkers to form a team. Interested persons should contact the BEC office at 891-6424 or visit www.becnet.org for more info.
