Creek cleanup effort on tap April 18

Help the Laguna Canyon Foundation clean up trash along Aliso Creek on Saturday, April 18.

Restoration crews recently removed large stands of an invasive bamboo-like weed, Arundo. Now that this eyesore is gone, creek visitors will see the stream bed transform into a wooded glade bordering a meandering stream. Your cleanup efforts will help highlight the creek’s beauty by removing trash that has accumulated in the weedy Arundo. Residents, groups and organizations are invited to take part in this Earth Day activity and restoration effort.

The group will meet at 7:45 a.m. at the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park Ranger’s Headquarters at 28373 Alicia Parkway. The cleanup takes place from 8 to 11 a.m. along the portion of Aliso Creek between the Laguna Niguel Skateboard and Soccer Park and Pacific Park Drive.
