Despite not being on the ocean’s coast, Orinda will be participating in the 2011 International Coastal Cleanup Day. The group Friends of Orinda Creeks has organized an event to clean up the “coast” of Orinda’s creeks.
To participate in the cleanup event, meet the group behind Siam Orchid Restaurant, 23 Orinda Way, at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday, Sept. 17. The cleanup will last until around noon, although participants are not required to stay the entire time.
Bags, buckets and latex gloves will be provided; however, the group encourages participants to bring stronger work gloves if they have some and to wear closed-toed shoes for safety reasons.
