Follow the Bread Crumbs

Lunch litter is a primary source of the trash that we see on Miller Avenue and Camino Alto. We will be conducting a clean up on Friday, June 22nd, at 9:00am. Meet us at the Safeway parking lot where those two streets meet next to the Starbucks. Remember that you can join us for any length of time that you can. We will supply vests, pickers and garbage bags. Bring your garden gloves and we will all have a good (and productive) time.

For further information, contact Joan Murray at

Marching for a Clean Environment

Clean Mill Valley marched in its town’s Memorial Day Parade carrying its banner and a half dozen signs with messages of encouragement to keep our environment clean. Cheered by the crowds, we were there to join others to appreciate veterans and their sacrifices. Marching with us was Betsy Bikle of StreamKeepers of Mill Valley since we share goals to keep our watershed and all waterways pure. Shown below left: Janet and Jeff Conley (holding banner) and Joan Murray (waving). On the right, Larry Anderson (holding Adopt a Spot sign). Thanks to everyone who participated or cheered us on!

Volunteers from All Around

Columnist Dick Spotswood of the Marin Independent Journal is a strong supporter of local litter eradication and has written multiple times about our shared efforts in Marin. A recent column of his drew interest from Connie Vincelone of Pt. Reyes who participated in our Vista Point cleanup next to the Golden Gate Bridge. Clean Marin includes activists from every community in Marin. Also joining us that day was Jim Scriba and Craig Thomas of Sausalito Beautiful and Vicky Dehnert of Marin Clean Highways.

Welcome to
Adopt A Spot!

Some of our members have already adopted spots where they regularly pick up litter. We are seeing good results, but we need more hands! We are encouraging people to pitch in and adopt a section of a street in their neighborhood, an area of a favorite Step, Lane or Path, or an unsightly corner at a bus stop. We hope our combined efforts will help keep our town, its creeks, marshes and Bay clean.

If you have any questions or would like to pitch in and adopt a spot to clean up, please contact Jill at This will help us to coordinate our efforts and spread the word about Adopt A Spot!
