For more than ten years, the City of Healdsburg, along with a wonderful group of sponsors, have hosted the Foss Creek Cleanup. This community event provides an opportunity for residents to participate in maintenance and protection of our waterways by removing trash and debris from Foss Creek.
Foss Creek is a tributary of the Russian River which serves as a home to species protected by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The creek also funnels stormwater runoff from the City to the Russian River.
**2019 Cleanup Announced**
This year marks the 15th annual Foss Creek Cleanup. The event will take place on Saturday, September 28th at the Healdsburg Community Center from 9:00am - 11:00am. All volunteers will receive breakfast and a commemorative t-shirt, however we encourage you to reuse your old commemorative t-shirt if you have one from a previous Foss Creek Cleanup! The event schedule will be as follows:
