April 22, 2017 Twin Creek
The Crest to Coast project headed upstream to San Bernardino to restore Twin Creek on Earth Day!
Initial site visits in early February revealed how the waterway was highly impacted by the homeless encampments along the creek. Litter and large debris have accumulated in the vegetation along the waterway as well as throughout the underpass of Orange Show Road, which made it a top priority for restoration in San Bernardino.
On Earth Day, over 56 community members including Arrowhead Brand Mountain Spring Water families, members of the Urban Conservation Corps, members of the Cucamonga Foothill Preservation Alliance, Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority Fellows, and dedicated Crest to Coast community volunteers worked diligently and effectively at the site.
Just after a few hours, approximately 10 tons or over 20,000 pounds of litter, debris, and toxic material was removed from the now dry bed of Twin Creek. We could not be more ecstatic of the effort and outcome put forth by all involved in this project! THANK YOU!
