Volunteers also helped build trails, plant new native landscape and remove graffiti. Join us this year and be a part of this international event! 

Registration opens on August 8th! For more information and registration, head over to CleanupDay.org

When you register, pledge to Bring Your Own bucket, work gloves, a reusable water bottle, or all three! When you choose reusables, you help cut down on the number of disposable items used for the event!

Each volunteer will need to sign a waiver form and volunteers under the age of 18 will need a parent/guardian signature. Visit CleanupDay.org for more details!

National Charity League Poway Chapter


This month, for our volunteer spotlight, we are highlighting an inspiring group of women from the Poway Chapter of the National Charity League! The NCL is a philanthropic organization that fosters mother-daughter relationships through a commitment to service, leadership development, and cultural experiences.


Some of the members from this organization first started volunteering with ILACSD through our storm drain stenciling program and have continued on ever since! They have chosen ILACSD as one of their focus philanthropies, and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful to have such wonderful mothers and daughters volunteer with us!


Members from this group recently came out and helped ILACSD assemble large trash and recycling bins for the busy 4th of July weekend! Leslie Bell says, “The world is a village and it takes all of us to make it work!” Thanks to their volunteerism, our local beaches where able to have extra trash and recycling bins during this past 4th of July weekend.


The NCL and their Poway Chapter are extremely motivated to give back to the San Diego community and we are thankful for their volunteerism with ILACSD and doing their part in creating a litter free San Diego!


Water Authority Partnership Will Save Millions of Gallons of Water at Balboa Park

 ​​New upgrades at Balboa Park will save millions of gallons of water a year and trim energy consumption thanks to a collaboration between Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, the San Diego County Water Authority and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).


The partners funded the installation of 365 high-efficiency water fixtures, like toilets, urinals and flow-control devices and faucets, to restrooms and kitchens in nine historic Park buildings that are home to 13 cultural organizations.


Most of the water savings will be achieved in restrooms where water use will be cut by more than half. Energy savings will result from avoiding the need to collect, transport and treat the conserved water.


Through its Live WaterSmart campaign, the Water Authority offers residents and business numerous classes, rebates and other resources to make more positive and permanent lifestyle changes that promote water-use efficiency. Learn more at WaterSmartSD.org.
