The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance celebrated Earth Day with their bi-annual Spring Community Wide Clean Up on Saturday April 21. Participants picked up trash and recyclable material, resulting in the removal of over 610 pounds of trash from Fallbrook streets. Fifty-one people volunteered their time to help clean up Fallbrook streets and parks, thirteen of whom were children.
Pictured above is the youngest volunteer, Jackson Premo.
Several local groups participated, including the American Heritage Girls Troop, the Fallbrook Garden Club, The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, as well as numerous families, friends and young adults. Pictured above is BoyScout Troop 725, from left to right:

The clean up day was scheduled in conjunction with "I Love A Clean San Diego" Annual Clean Up Day. Fallbrook joined over 100 other communities and clean up sites removing an estimated 105 tons of debris from local rivers, creeks, canyons, neighborhoods, parks, beaches and bays.
