The 5th Annual Creek Clean-up on October 2, 2010 followed on the coat tails of last year's event by removing invasive vegetation from the north side of the Sacramento River Trail, from the Sundial Bridge to the Market Street bridge. From 8am to noon numerous volunteers cleared invasive vegetation such as Himalayan Blackberry bushes and Ailanthus trees using chainsaws, rakes and good old-fashioned sweat labor. These were fed into chippers to be used a mulch along the trail. The result is that in many locations you can now view the Sacramento River from the trail.
