California Coastal Cleanup Day may be the world’s largest marine-related volunteer event, but every day we need to keep our coastline clean. This year’s Cleanup Day slogan was “Help make trash extinct”! It’s a long-term project, and every communal effort takes us a step closer to safer, more beautiful beaches and waterways.
Join us at Damon Slough in Oakland on Sat, Dec 7, 10 am – noon. The Marsh is at MLK Jr. Regional Shoreline, a 741-acre park protecting the remainder of a once-extensive wetland on San Leandro Bay. The park includes the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Grove, completed with community support and dedicated in 1993. The 50-acre Arrowhead Marsh is a stop-over on the Pacific Flyway and is part of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network.
Also bring your own reusable supplies if you have any of the following: bucket, trash bags, and gloves.
RSVP to confirm your participation: (510) 532-6574 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event takes the place of the East Bay chapter’s monthly retreat. Restore yourself from within while restoring the world without!
