Beach and Coastal Cleanups
Coastal Cleanup Day, September 19, 2015, is the largest volunteer event in California, and one of the largest in the world. We are gearing up to celebrate with beach and shoreline cleanups – and lots more!
Get excited for Coastal Cleanup Day!
Multiple Cleanup Sites: Sept 19, 9am-12pm
We suggest the following sites:
- Aquarium of the Bay will host a cleanup at our usual site at Aquatic Park with our partners from the SF Maritime National Historical Park.
- Additionally, we are working with our colleagues from the EcoCenter at Heron's Head Park along with many partners to coordinate 13 sites across the east side of San Francisco, along the bay side of the city. Traditionally, east side sites need more help to remove a larger volume of trash from the watershed.
For all cleanups, please wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen, and bring a reusable water bottle. Help reduce the coastal cleanup footprint and BYO your own gloves and bucket if you have them. Go here to see local cleanup sites and sign up to cleanup!
We hope to see you there!
