Escondido Street Stewards are joining the Escondido Rotary on our first SECOND SATURDAY STREET STEWARD PICKUP. Plan is for a group pickup on every month’s Second Saturday where we will target problem areas around Escondido. Feel free to suggest areas needing our help.

In October (10/9 at 9:00 AM), we will join the Rotary, coordinated with Caltrans, cleaning the on and off ramps/green areas at Route 78 from Centre City Pkwy. The Rotary has been cleaning these areas quarterly for five years.

Since this is freeway proximity pickup, we will meet promptly at 9:00 AM for a required one-time safety briefing, and then work for about 90 minutes. Meet next to the community garden entrance at the east end of W Lincoln Ave, just west of CCP. From El Norte Pkwy, turn south onto Morning View Dr., follow Morning View until it dead ends at Lincoln, left on Lincoln and park near the community garden entrance.

Caltrans will provide vests, gloves, hard hats, trash pickers and bags. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, long sleeve shirts and pants. Caltrans COVID protocols will be enforced. We have had good turnouts for our N. Quince St and Westside Park area recent pickups and hope to keep the momentum going so spread the word.
