DOLLARS FOR POUNDS is a partnership between OCWC and the business community in which our volunteers pledge to help Keep Oak Creek Beautiful by removing litter and trash from areas of Oak Creek where there is concentrated recreation, and [Proud Sponsor] pledge to pay $1 for every pound of trash removed.
Oak Creek Community Outreach Program
This event was conducted as part of the Oak Creek Community Outreach Program (OCCOP) and its purpose was to pick up trash and litter from three sites – each one mile (approximate) segments of Oak Creek, as well as promote proper stewardship of Oak Creek.
The Oak Creek Community Outreach Program (OCCOP) will essentially be a community-driven (maintenance) program to remove trash and litter from Oak Creek, as well as educate watershed residents, and visitors, in the proper stewardship of Oak Creek so as to raise the bar on outdoor ethics practiced (or not).
The successful development and implementation of a comprehensive outreach and education program, in addition to the OCWIP, would help support, if not ensure, the legacy of clean water in Oak Creek for future generations.
