Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at the McNear’s Beach in San Rafael.

 

We're excited to partner with LIFT-Levantate and the Marin County Parks. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 3 and up!

 

  • We'll have 1 -1.5 hours of volunteer cleanup opportunities led by a Marin County Park Ranger in beautiful McNear's Park in San Rafael.
  • Entry in to the Park is free for the day. Tell the front gate staff that you are volunteering and they will point you to our location
  • Yoga-in-the Park is an option for those wanting to limber up a bit after their volunteer work.
  • We'll end the morning with a delicious build your own salad bar and a "Eat the Rainbow" theme for your whole family.

 

Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation!
