2023 marks the 28th anniversary of Oakland Creek to Bay Day, held in conjunction with California and International Coastal Cleanup Day, one of the largest organized volunteer days in California, the nation, and 100 other participating countries. Annually, on the third Saturday in September (though this year it's the fourth Saturday), thousands of volunteers come together to remove litter from waterways, shorelines, and upstream areas around the world.

Individuals and households can be a part of this 28th anniversary event by pitching in to clean up coastal areas across the city, as well as pledging and committing to actions from our homes to protect watersheds. We also encourage residents, neighborhoods, and local organizations to adopt spots and drains in Oakland to clean year round!
