Thousands expected for annual San Diego cleanup

SAN DIEGO - Conservation group I Love a Clean San Diego will host its annual cleanup Saturday at more than 90 coastal and inland sites throughout San Diego County.

The event, dubbed "Creek to Bay Cleanup," coincides with the nonprofit's 60th anniversary. Volunteers will be asked to pick up trash, perform storm draining stenciling and remove graffiti.

“As I Love A Clean San Diego celebrates its 60th anniversary year, it is more important than ever that our events, such as the Creek to Bay Cleanup, work to build the next generation of environmental stewards,” stated executive director Pauline Martinson in a press release. “Through these cleanup efforts, volunteers young and old will be empowered to take action in preserving our local environment.”

The event is in its 12th year and attracted about 6,000 volunteers last year.
