For over 15 years each end of August, the Redwood Shores Community Association (RSCA) has sponsored the Annual Levee Cleanup.
The Shores Levee Cleanup day is a fun community event. To benefit the environment, RSCA helps beautify seven miles of levee surrounding Redwood Shores. Volunteers are assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas. Kids and parents, adults and seniors are all welcome and encouraged to get involved in this worthwhile event. Family work groups handle their areas at their own pace; all help to keep these bountiful nature trails debris-free.

This is a great opportunity for Redwood City residents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing a variety of birds and other wildlife. Volunteer and enjoy the splendor of our seven miles of shoreline, including incredible views of the bay.
Please join us; bring gloves and wear good walking shoes… all pickup tools and trash bags will be provided. Take pride in enhancing this important Redwood City resource, and join us Saturday, August 25, 8am to noon.
Lunch is on us! As a small ‘thank you’ to our volunteers, a barbecue is sponsored by our friends at the San Mateo Credit Union for all hands. Barbeque is served at noon at Mariner Park.
Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collector containers, and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from the Redwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by Recology Systems free of charge. Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!
This year’s cleanup is dedicated to the esteemed Pete Hughes, to acknowledge his faithful community leadership. Pete organized this valued community initiative from the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business and community leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.
