SDSU Alumni Day of Service 2023 - River Clean Up

Saturday, March 25, 2023 from 8 AM to 12 PM
Home Depot Parking Lot (east of Garden Center)

On March 25, 2023, our Aztec community will partner with the San Diego River Park Foundation (SDRPF) to clean a portion of the San Diego River in the Mission Valley area below the Alvarado and Fairmount Creeks connector for the inaugural SDSU Alumni Day of Service.

Alvarado and Fairmount Creeks are the primary channels that move stormwater and debris away from the Mesa and into the San Diego River, eventually finding its way downstream to the Mission Valley area around Snapdragon Stadium. In the past year, volunteers have removed over 11,000 pounds of trash from this area managed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, much of which was stormwater debris that accumulates after storms.

The SDSU Alumni Day of Service is a great way to connect and engage with other SDSU alumni, students, parents, supporters through volunteerism and giving back to the community. Our goal for the program is to provide 100–150 SDSU alumni and their families (age 16 and over), a memorable and meaningful alumni experience. This year’s project, clean-up of the San Diego River, is also designed to align with the SDSU strategic priorities to embrace the principles of responsible environmental stewardship.
