Adopt-A-Creek / Adopt-A-Spot Program

Individuals, neighborhood groups, civic organizations, and businesses can play an active role in beautifying and maintaining their neighborhoods through the Adopt-A-Creek / Adopt-A-Spot Program, run by the Alameda County Public Works Agency. Volunteers, including school age children under the supervision of an adult, come together for projects such as removing litter, removing weeds and other unwanted vegetation, painting over graffiti, and maintaining plants and wildlife habitat. Areas that can be adopted include County streets, County-owned vacant land as well as creeks, flood control channels, and access areas.
