Description

The City of Menlo Park and Grassroots Ecology are partnering to host volunteers for Coastal Cleanup Day at San Francisquito Creek! This annual event brings communities together throughout the state to clean California's beaches, lakes, and watersheds. Join us as we remove trash and recyclables from our local watershed to celebrate and enhance our beautiful waterways.

Parking: Street parking is plentiful.

Where: We will meet at 1 Alma Street, Menlo Park, at the park near the intersection of East Creek Drive and Alma Street.

Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (i.e., allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our projects are flexible and we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to the workday facilitator so we can best prepare for your participation.
