Protecting the Environment: Moulton Niguel Cleans up the Aliso Creek

For the 12th consecutive year, Moulton Niguel participated in the annual Aliso Viejo Trails & Creek Clean-Up event, hosted by the City of Aliso Viejo, which cleans local watersheds and keeps pollution from reaching Orange County beaches. At this year’s event, approximately 130 volunteers collected more than 1,000 pounds of trash from local creeks and trails. Thank you to the City of Aliso Viejo for hosting this event!

A special thank you to members of the Laguna Niguel Girl Scout Troop 30 who joined us at our booth to raise awareness about the effects of garbage and pollution in the ocean. Together, we want to remind our community how simple actions like not overwatering your lawn and not throwing trash in overflowing trash cans can help keep our oceans clean!
