Redwood Shores Levee Cleanup Day Scheduled

Redwood City, CA - August 19 , 2005 - On Saturday, August 27th, beginning at 8:30 am, the Redwood Shores Community Association, in association with the City of Redwood City, sponsors the annual Redwood Shores Levee Cleanup Day. This is a great opportunity to get outside, enjoy some of Redwood Shores’ beautiful summer weather, and help to clean up and beautify seven miles of levee around Redwood Shores.

In previous years, many tons of debris have been removed from the levees including tires, wood, rubbish, and the typical flotsam and jetsam that accumulates. Kids, adults, seniors, and families are welcome and all are encouraged to work at their own pace. Every piece of refuse removed is important.

The levee cleanup day is a fun community event that helps the environment, and helps to beautify Redwood Shores. And for non-Redwood Shores volunteers, it’s a great opportunity to learn about the beauty of our shoreline, enjoy the sight of a variety of wildlife, and experience incredible views of the bay. The Redwood Shores Community Association website is located at

Volunteers are welcome and should meet at Mariner Park (near the corner of Bridge Parkway and Redwood Shores Parkway) at 8:30 am for complimentary coffee and bagels. Following that, volunteers will be divided into work groups and assigned an area for cleanup. A free barbeque for the volunteers will be served at noon at Mariner Park, as a small ‘thank you’ for helping to beautify and enhance this important Redwood City resource. The food is sponsored by the San Mateo Credit Union, and invaluable assistance is also provided by Norcal Waste Systems.
