Event Details

Join Supervisor John Gioia and the Watershed Project at Shimada Friendship Park during the 31st annual California Coastal Cleanup Day!

 

Join volunteers across California in protecting our coasts from trash. Last year 66,844 volunteers all over the state joined together to pick up 1,085,505 pounds of trash and 104,559 pounds of recyclables, resulting in 595 fewer tons of trash in our creeks and shorelines. You too can help make a difference! Join us during Coastal Cleanup Day.

 

 

Date: Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Time: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Who: You + 3000 other volunteers! Invite your family and friends.

Where: Meet at the Richmond Shoreline at Shimada Friendship Park. End of Marina Bay Parkway near the intersection of Peninsula Dr.

 

Supplies: All cleanup supplies are provided – bag or bucket, gloves, data card, pencil, etc. However, we encourage everyone to bring their own reusable bucket, water container and/or gloves.

 

Safety: Please wear close-toed shoes to protect your feet. Be sure to wear a hat and/or sunscreen to protect you against the sun. Bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated.

 

 

Waiver forms: To participate, each volunteer must have a signed waiver form. Children must be accompanied by an adult. To save time at the registration table, you can complete your waiver at home and bring it to the event. (English|Espanol)


 

Lunch: Please join us after the cleanup for a free lunch provided and hosted by Supervisor John Gioia.


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 510-665-3430.
