Martin Luther King Day Cleanup 1/14/17

If one of your New Years resolutions involves going greener, here’s a great opportunity for you to start!

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service, Aquarium of the Bay is hosting a beach cleanup on Saturday, January 14, 2017.  Join us at Aquatic Park from 10 am-1 pm to help us clean everyday items – like straws, wrappers, cigarette butts, and other plastic trash – from polluting our beaches and harming our ecosystems. We love working alongside dedicated volunteers, as well as our partners from the SF Maritime National Historic Park, to work towards a trash-free Bay.

What to bring: this signed waiver, comfortable clothes, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a reusable water bottle. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own gloves and a bucket if possible.


If you find something interesting, learn a valuable lesson, or even just have a great time, tell us about it! Tweet about your beach cleanup experience using the hashtag #SavingTomorrow for a chance to win 2 tickets for a Behind-the-Scenes tour at Aquarium of the Bay.
