Friends of Willow Creek will be hosting the fourth annual Earth Day Willow Creek Community Cleanup and Native Plant Restoration on Saturday, April 26th, from 9:00 am to 12:30pm. Each year, Friends of the Creek volunteers invite community members and families to join this annual event dedicated to clearing invasives and planting natives.
Willow Creek is part of a growing network of restoration efforts in Marin County led by volunteers dedicated to restoring and enhancing our natural resources and raising awareness of the importance of maintaining clean water and healthy watersheds to support and enhance the wellbeing of the communities they serve. In Sausalito, Willow Creek provides a unique opportunity to restore, enhance, and maintain a vital asset for education and scenic enjoyment for generations to come.
This year Friends of the Creek is extending a special invitation to families with children attending school or pre-school in Sausalito. Sausalito is now home to five schools and pre-schools including Willow Creek Academy, Le Lycée, The New Village School, Sparrow Creek Montessori School and the Sausalito Nursery School. Willow Creek Academy (WCA) was the first school in Sausalito to integrate the Creek into their school-day across all disciplines including math, language arts and environmental education and WCA has played a key role in creek restorations to date. Friends of the Creek welcomes the opportunity to bring the benefits of creek stewardship to others.
Willow Grove is located at the corner of Nevada and Bridgeway where the creek flows above-ground for a few hundred feet.The community has responded positively to the sustained success of these efforts and are eager to expand these effort this Spring.
The Earth Day cleanup event takes place at Willow Creek on Saturday April 26th, from 9am to 12:30pm.
