Volunteer Spotlight: Creek to Bay Site Captains
I Love A Clean San Diego is lucky to have more than 200 dedicated site captains that support the organization twice a year with our countywide cleanups, Creek to Bay and Coastal Cleanup Day. Last month, while preparing for the 11th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup, we had a chance to get to know a few of our site captains a little better.
