Zero Waste Week is a grass-roots approach to raise awareness about the environmental impacts of waste and ways to live a more zero waste lifestyle. Throughout the week, California North Bay communities demonstrate how they are part of the solution through public awareness and activities that focused on reducing, reusing, recycling, repurposing and composting. Anyone can be part of the solution!
Join us in taking zero waste action!

City of Santa Rosa Streamside Creek Protector Adventure Day (ages 5+)
The City of Santa Rosa’s Storm Water and Creeks team would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, July 27, from 9 a.m. - noon for an educational kids creek event along Santa Rosa Creek! This event coincides with Zero Waste Week North Bay and will give kids the chance to dive into the wonders of the natural world around our local creeks. We’ll get crafty with leaves and flowers, peek into the microworld of aquatic insects with a microscope, observe birds up close and personal, do a scavenger hunt to follow a drop of rain to the creek, learn about habitat, and make our own Creek Protector buttons. The Sonoma State Biology Department has also generously loaned us preserved animal specimens from their collection for the kids to have an opportunity to get a close look, and even handle some of the birds, mammals, and insects that can be found on our creeks throughout Santa Rosa.
During the event, our team of naturalists will be helping kids complete the Creek Protector book challenges to receive fun patches. Upon completion, they will even earn a Creek Protector prize! We look forward to seeing you there. Please note that this is not a drop-off event.
