The Orange County Conservation Corps is having our 1st Annual Innovation in Environmental Stewardship Awards.
Sunday November 8, 2015
@ The Heritage Museum of Orange County
This year we’re honoring:
For their contributions to the Adopt-a-Channel program.
What is the Adopt A Channel Program?
OC Public Works operates and maintains more than 350 miles of regional flood control channels in Orange County. These channels provide a vital service protecting life and property by conveying stormwater runoff to prevent flooding of nearby communities. Along with controlling stormwater runoff, these channels also collect trash and debris and are subject to graffiti.
The main objectives of the Adopt A Channel Program are to improve the physical appearance of these channels and to increase awareness and commitment to keep our channels, creeks, bays and ocean clean. Adoption provides community stewardship for these important resources and, in return, Adopters are recognized for their contributions through signage and other means.
