Background

There has been long-present litter along Solano Avenue, most notably from Trower to Luke Avenues in north Napa. Debris is present and, because it is not getting removed, has broken down into smaller and smaller bits over the years.

This stretch continually gains additional litter: sources being passengers who utilize two bus stops along Solano, drivers who toss litter out the window, citizens who walk this region, plus natural forces (wind) which blow loose debris to this stretch.

A small urban waterway, Salvador Creek, runs the length. Lots of manmade debris is visible within the waterway and along the road.

Date/Timing

  • June 9
  • 9am to approximately 11:30am
  • Arrive when able; meetup along the route
  • Gloves, safety vests, grabbers provided

Location

Meet at corner of Trower Avenue and Solano Avenue at bike trail. Plenty of free street parking in the area.

We will work in teams, heading north with goal to reach Luke Avenue, where the urban creek tucks underground.

Most litter is on the street and within the weeds. Some is located within the waterway. We will reach into to waterway to clear debris.
