Creek Week is an annual community event hosted by the Creeks Division, County Project Clean Water, the City of Carpinteria, and the City of Goleta, celebrating our local creeks and the ocean, with many local groups sponsoring events to help build awareness and stewardship of the natural treasures of Santa Barbara.
Help kick off Creek Week Saturday, September 19th
by participating with volunteers worldwide on the 25th
Annual Coastal Cleanup Day, then bring the family to the Watershed Resource Center to enjoy creek activities and crafts.
Tour the Arroyo Hondo Preserve, the Carpinteria Salt Marsh, or the Upper Las Positas Creek Restoration Project. Help clean the creeks before the rains wash trash to the ocean! Volunteer to clean up Higgins Springs in Carpinteria, or help cleanup after the West Beach Music Festival and receive a festival pass for next year!
Learn about efforts to restore the endangered steelhead trout to our local creeks. Take the kids to explore Sycamore Creek, or enjoy an evening bird walk with the Audubon Society. With a week packed full of events, there is something for everyone!
