Spotted: Family cleaning up San Francisquito Creek
The 32nd annual coastal and bay clean up day in San Mateo County was today, and in Menlo Park that includes gathering trash from San Francisquito Creek. We spotted a father and his two sons doing just that early this morning along the stretch of the Creek that runs between Yale and Arbor roads.
Last year, 4,369 people turned out for cleanup events across San Mateo County, more than any other county in the Bay Area. These volunteers collected 30,985 pounds of trash and recyclables, including over 29,000 cigarette butts.
