By Carly Erickson / The Malibu Times

The California State Parks Foundation is conducting its annual Earth Day Restoration Cleanup on April 13, and up to 75 volunteers are needed to help with cleanup and improvement projects at Malibu Creek State Park. Volunteer registration closes Mon., April 8.

Cleanup participants will be repairing trails and stairs, as well as building benches, railings and signs. Additionally, a “kid shack” will be built for use by children’s programs.

“For 16 years, our Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup has brought communities together to beautify and preserve beaches, forests and historic sites at California state parks,” said Elizabeth Goldstein, president of CSPF. “State parks continue to need a helping hand and we’d like to thank our friends for their contributions in helping to keep our state parks magnificent.”

On April 13, The California State Parks Foundation will host 24 environmental improvement projects at state parks across California as part of its 16th Annual Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup to help maintain the scenic nature of California’s state parks.
