Supplies: All cleanup supplies are provided – bag or bucket, gloves, data card, pencil, etc. However, we strongly encourage everyone to bring their own reusable waterbottle, bucket and/or gloves.
Safety: Please wear close-toed shoes to avoid stepping on anything sharp and be sure to wear a hat and/or sunscreen to protect yourself against the sun.

Call to Kayakers! We are looking for 15 experienced kayakers to join the Flotsam Flotilla and help clean up the mess that has already reached the Bay. We have kayaks for a handful of 'yakers' on a first come, first served basis and we are looking for experienced kayakers to join us in their own boat. If you are interested, please contact us at (661)373-8337.
For any questions or additional information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
And a special thanks to our sponsors: Wareham Development, Steve's Auto Care, Daniel Winkler Realty, REI, and the California Coastal Commission.
