Bring your friends and family and join San Francisco Baykeeper for California Coastal Cleanup Day!

Baykeeper is hosting a beach cleanup at India Basin Shoreline Park to target the serious marine debris problem that disproportionately affects our City's eastern shoreline. California Coastal Cleanup Day is the state's largest single effort to remove the debris that has accumulated on beaches and inland shorelines over the past year, bringing tens of thousands of volunteers out annually to protect the marine wildlife and habitat that can be badly damaged by marine debris.

CCDIndia Basin Shoreline Park is located in San Francisco's Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood and is a thriving recreational destination in the community. The park is located on Hunters Point Boulevard at Hawes Street and is accessible by MUNI lines 19 and 44.

The cleanup runs from 9 AM to Noon.

Please come prepared:  Wear comfortable shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Don't forget sun protection! Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own bucket or reusable bag, gloves and reusable water bottle, so that they won't have to use the disposable items that are supplied.

Safety is our first priority. Even the cleanest-looking beach can hide dangers under the sand, such as nails, broken glass or hypodermic needles. Everybody who joins us for a beach cleanup is required to sign a waiver form.

If you have any questions about the cleanup, please contact Jenna McElroy, Development Associate for San Francisco Baykeeper at jenna@baykeeper.org or 415-856-0444 x 112.
