Disneyland Resort President Michael Colglazier and Director of Environmental Affairs Frank Dela Vara, along with Marine Life Artist Wyland and Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach, helped unveil Adopt A Channel, a new, countywide program that promotes environmental stewardship to keep Orange County’s regional flood control channels clean of graffiti and debris. The Disneyland Resort piloted the program by adopting a two-mile section of the Anaheim-Barber City channel that flows west of the Disneyland Resort. To date, nearly 600 pounds of trash and 12,000 square feet of graffiti have been removed.
“At the Disneyland Resort, our focus on the environment dates back to our founder, Walt Disney,” said Michael Colglazier, president of Disneyland Resort. “It is with great pride that we continue his legacy by helping to create the Adopt A Channel program that champions the protection of natural resources and inspires others to take an active role in preserving our waterways.”
