What is Creek Connections Action Group?
The Creek Connections Action Group is a consortium of public agencies and non-profit organizations that share a goal of protecting Santa Clara County’s waterways. These agencies include the Santa Clara Valley Water District, Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation, and the City of San José.
The Creek Connections Action Group (CCAG) was formed in San José, California in the fall of 1995 by several local agency coordinators whose goal was to collaborate their creek cleanup efforts in Santa Clara County. Since the group’s inception, thousands of volunteers have participated in hundreds of cleanups, removing thousands of pounds of trash each year from creeks, rivers, and lakes in Santa Clara County.
The CCAG currently coordinates two creek cleanups a year in Santa Clara County:
National River Cleanup Day – held the third Saturday in May
Coastal Cleanup Day – held the third Saturday in September
