Riverbed Cleanup and Restoration Event at Otay Valley Regional Park

October 26 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

For this community event, we will not only be hosting our first inland cleanup in the Otay Valley Riverbed, ridding the area of debris before they have the opportunity to make it out the ocean, but we will also be doing some restoration work, removing invasive species from the riverbed and surrounding trails.

Please register for this event here.

Driving Directions
From the I5, turn left on to Main Street, then take a right on to Broadway.  Turn right, on to the first cross street, Faivre St.  The meet up location is at the first intersection, in the dirt lot on the corner of Faivre and 27th Sb St.

Cleanup Information

Meet at the dirt lot, and look for the blue Coastkeeper pop-up tent. That’s where you’ll start your morning by signing in and borrowing cleanup supplies or invasive removal supplies.  We will walk you through some safety information and make sure you are properly equipped to help.

Please wear comfortable clothes, closed-toed shoes and sunscreen.

All volunteers (individuals as well as groups) are welcome to participate and must sign this liability waiver. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present at the beginning of the cleanup to sign a liability waiver before the minor can participate.  Registration is not required unless a group is larger than 20 people – to register please contact cleanups@sdcoastkeeper.org.

As a volunteer, you play an active role in determining the sources of trash that we find. During the cleanup, please be prepared to fill out a data card detailing the types of trash that you collected, and make sure to have your trash weighed when you return to the registration table at the end of the cleanup.

Weather Cancellation Policy
If it is lightly raining, we will hold the cleanup. If there are heavy rains, we will cancel the cleanup. To check the status of a cleanup, please see the San Diego Coastkeeper events calendar or visit us on social media.
