Join Think Blue and I Love A Clean San Diego on Saturday, March 21st, 10AM-12PM at Torrey Hills Park in Carmel Valley for Storm Drain Stenciling Day! Volunteer and give back to the community as we stencil pollution prevention messages on all storm drains in the neighborhood and remove litter and debris before it reaches the Los Peñasquitos watershed.

Did you know that storm drains are not connected to the sewer system? That means they are not treated and drain directly into our creeks, bays, lagoons and ultimately the ocean. Litter, debris, and pollutants are swept along with the water into the storm drains, polluting our waterways. Join us by stenciling a pollution prevention message above storm drains around the neighborhood. By doing so, you are educating the public that no pollutants or trash should go down the drains and into the ocean!

Stencils are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Registration does not guarantee a stenciling kit. ALL are welcome to join for litter removal throughout the neighborhood!
All volunteers will need a signed waiver from I Love A Clean San Diego, which is available in the link below. Participants under the age of 18 need parent or guardian signatures on their waivers. Any participants under the age of 14 may need adult supervision for stenciling. Join us in our efforts to be zero waste by bringing any reusable items such as water bottles, work gloves, and buckets!
