Thank You Volunteers Sign
The El Cerrito community has a strong history of environmental stewardship and volunteerism. The City supports this volunteer spirit by helping link citizens and groups with opportunities to work on fun projects that help improve El Cerrito's environment -- such as restoring our creeks and natural areas, beautifying our parks, keeping harmful litter from polluting our waterways and stormdrains, and building a community garden.
