San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
World Oceans Day is celebrated internationally on June 8. At Aquarium of the Bay, we’re celebrating with a beach cleanup on Saturday, June 11 at Aquatic Park in San Francisco. We love working alongside dedicated volunteers to pick up everyday items like straws, wrappers, cigarette butts, and other plastic trash from harming our ecosystem. Please join us and our partners SF National Maritime Historical Park and Shark Stewards to help keep trash out of our Bay!
What to bring: this signed waiver, comfortable clothes, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, and a reusable coffee mug if you’d like free coffee generously provided by Biscoff Coffee Corner. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own gloves and bucket if possible, which helps reduce waste generated by the cleanup itself.
As a thank you, registered volunteers will receive a ticket to Aquarium of the Bay after cleanup completion. We hope to see you there!

When & Where
Aquarium of the Bay
At Aquarium of the Bay, we focus on water, beginning at the heart—the very depths—of San Francisco Bay. Located on San Francisco’s iconic waterfront, Aquarium of the Bay provides unforgettable encounters with local marine life that inspire both wonder and conservation and leave a lasting impact with guests.
Our facility showcases 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding 700,000 gallons of carefully maintained Bay water that sustains approximately 30,000 animals, from octopuses to eight-foot native, sevengill sharks. Visitors are also treated to mesmerizing walls of jellies and a chance to touch bat rays, skates and “splash zone" animals.
Aquarium of the Bay is a division of bay.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to protect, restore and inspire the conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the sea.
