Creek Week Organizers Invite the Community to Get On Board

A week of more than 20 events begins Saturday with Coastal Cleanup Day

The 11th annual Creek Week, scheduled for Sept. 25-Oct. 3, is a celebration of local watersheds, and an opportunity for community members to learn more about local creeks through hands-on activities and volunteer events.

This year, Creek Week festivities will kick off Saturday, Sept. 25 to coincide with Coastal Cleanup Day and will continue through Sunday, Oct. 3. The event raises awareness of the many ways to enjoy, protect and restore local watersheds.

Creek Week is coordinated by the City of Santa Barbara Creeks Division, Santa Barbara County Project Clean Water, the City of Goleta and the City of Carpinteria, with fun and educational events planned and hosted by many community groups and environmental organizations.

Included in the weeklong calendar of more than 20 Creek Week events will be creek and beach cleanups, habitat restoration, guided nature walks and more.

The public is invited to join the City of Santa Barbara Creeks Division, Horny Toad Activewear and the Santa Barbara County Youth Corps for a native planting day at Oak Park at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 30.

Participants will learn more about the goals of the Mission Creek Restoration and Fish Passage Project at Oak Park, which includes the replacement of a sewer main, the installation of nearly 3,000 native plants, new fish passage elements, and restoration of the creek bed and banks.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
