Weed and Trash Cleanups

Our all-volunteer PBTC 501(c)(3) is supplementing the City’s efforts to remove weeds and trash from highly visible areas. See photos below of our projects including medians along Garnet Avenue near Rose Creek, the Garnet/Balboa split, both ends of Mission Bay Drive near the I-5 entrances and Soledad Mountain Road.

We have an cleanup event on the second Saturday of each month from 8-10 AM.

Next event: September 10, 2022, from 8 am to 10 am.  We’ll be cleaning up the south end of Mission Bay Drive.  Directions: As you proceed south on Mission Bay Drive, turn right into Mission Bay Park just before the entrance ramp to I-5 South. Park there and walk over to the check-in desk on the grass facing Mission Bay Drive.

PBTC volunteers clean up the median at the east end of Grand Avenue on April 9, 2022.

We recommend volunteers bring gardening gloves, sunscreen, visors or hats, and drinking water. We will have tools, but if you can bring pruners or loppers from home, this would ensure that we have enough tools for everyone.

Get added to our volunteer mailing list.

    Shown below are PBTC board members Brian White, Susan Crowers, Ron Walker, and Charlie Nieto getting after those weeds. There’s a LOT more to do, so please volunteer for our weed removal task force!

    Below are some before-and-after photos of PBTC weed abatement efforts. What a difference! But the job is far from done, so we hope you’ll volunteer to help.
