We are hosting a table at the Visions of the Wild Discovery Zone, and would love to have you join us to spread the news about the Vallejo Watershed Alliance. If you are interested in staffing the table, please email We will have touch tanks with Critters of Lake Chabot displayed, as well as general information about our habitat restoration projects and cleanups.

The festival is wonderful, and if you can’t help out at the table, we hope you’ll attend one of the many activities. This year’s festival will honor environmental heroes of Vallejo and Benicia, who will be celebrated on opening night, Thursday, October 12 at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum. Spoiler Alert: people we know and love will be honored!

Looking ahead, mark your calendars for Saturday, November 18. We’ll be returning to Glen Cove Waterfront Park to continue work on the habit restoration site.

As always, email with any questions.

A HUGE thanks to all of you who participated in this year’s Coastal Cleanup Day. Vallejo had 19 sites covering 21 miles of shoreline. 523 volunteers removed more than 7,000 pounds of trash and recyclables, making our city safer and more beautiful. We thank all of our partners who make the event possible … we couldn’t do it without you!

Coastal Cleanup Day is Here!

Join more than 40,000 volunteers across the state for the largest volunteer day on the planet! This vital community-building event takes place every September, encouraging residents to cleanup their local shorelines, rivers, creeks, lakes and inland waterways. This year’s event takes place on Saturday, September 23 from 9 a.m. to noon.

There are 20 different cleanup sites to choose from, or you can join the Vallejo Watershed Alliance site along Rindler Creek (meet at the corner of Fairgrounds Drive and Coach Lane). Other sites include Dan Foley Park, Hanns Park, River Park, Cullinan Ranch, Blue Rock Springs Park, Glen Cove Marina and Glen Cove Waterfront Park, Vallejo Municipal Marina, Lake Dalwigk, Meadows at Catalina and Delta Meadows Park, and White Slough (behind EcoThrift).

Cleanup organizers are committed to eliminating the waste created by the cleanup itself. They ask volunteers to bring reusable cleanup supplies, such as work gloves, a water bottle, or a bucket to help ensure their work sites generate no trash of their own. Each site will be well-stocked with the necessary supplies if needed.

Find a site near you by calling (707) 645-8258 or email or visit If you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver before participating. Volunteers should wear sunscreen, sturdy shoes, a hat, mask and work gloves.

This year’s local cleanups are made possible through the active participation of the cities and counties of Solano, the California Coastal Commission, Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District, Valcore Recycling, Recology Vallejo, and the Greater Vallejo Recreation District.
