SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – Volunteers turned out in force Saturday to participate in the I Love a Clean San Diego’s 16th Annual Creek to Bay Clean Up.
The clean-up kicked off at 9am and more than 6,200 volunteers picked up litter at 113 neighborhoods countywide - from coastal communities to inland locations.
Through the effort, more than 175,000 pounds of trash, debris and pollutants were removed along with graffiti; invasive plants were replaced with water-wise native plants restoring San Diego County's natural habitats.
