Beach and Coastal Cleanups

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service was on Monday, January 18, and we were excited to once again celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. Aquarium of the Bay led a beach cleanup at our usual spot at Aquatic Park alongside our longtime partner, SF Maritime National Historical Park. We worked alongside with our colleagues from the EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park for a cleanup at the other end of the Embarcadero, thanks to support from the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tail program. 

Aquatic Park MLK Beach Cleanup

When: Monday, January 18, 2016 from 9 am-12 pm
Where: Aquatic Park beach and surrounding shoreline – meet at the end of Jefferson St., by the propeller sculpture (just west of Hyde Street Pier)
What to bring: signed registration waiver, comfortable clothes, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, and a reusable coffee mug if you’d like free coffee generously provided by Biscoff Coffee Corner

Together we can take action in support of a trash-free bay.
