The Living Arroyos program is a multi-agency partnership between the cities of Livermore, Dublin, and Pleasanton, Zone 7 Water Agency, and the Alameda County Resource Conversation District.
Congratulations on adopting a Tri-Valley creek!
Are you ready to get started? Follow these steps to schedule your volunteer event and ensure your group has a fun and safe time exploring our creeks.
Contact our Program Coordinator at least 10 days before you would like to schedule your event. This is to ensure there is no creek maintenance work scheduled during your volunteer event. You will need to know your event date, start time, and an estimated participant number.
You will also need to coordinate a time to pick up your event supplies. The Adopt a Creek program will provide your group with tarps, buckets, garbage bags, trash grabbers, flags, gloves, sharps containers, and hand sanitizer.
Tracking how much litter your group collects is very important. This data allows us to see where litter is located, what materials are the most common, and helps us make informed policy decisions to combat trash.
The easiest way to track how much litter your group collects is by downloading the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell app. Encourage your group’s volunteers to download it before the event. We also recommend bringing external cell phone chargers to your volunteer day to preserve battery life.
Each Tri-Valley city has their own app that citizens can use to report issues within their community. If your group finds any graffiti or items that are too large to remove, please report them to the city through these apps. Use the links below to download the correct app for your creek section’s location.
