Cupertino community members are encouraged to volunteer at this year’s Clean A Creek event at Creekside Park, 10455 Miller Avenue. The cleanup day will be held on Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon.

At last year’s edition, more than 1,880 volunteers collected 55,010 pounds of garbage, improving the creeks and lakes in the area.

Old shoes, long sleeves and sunscreen are recommended. Gloves and trash grabbers will be provided. To register, visit cleanacreek.org.
