Coastal Cleanup Day - Saturday, September 16, 2017

Baykeeper is hosting our annual beach cleanup at India Basin Shoreline Park on Saturday, September 16 to target the serious trash problem that disproportionately affects San Francisco'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 wildlife and habitat that can be badly damaged by marine debris.

When: The cleanup runs from 9am to Noon on Saturday, September 16th.Coastal Cleanup Day

Where: India Basin Shoreline Park is located in San Francisco's Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood and is a thriving recreational destination in the community.

We encourage participants to carpool or take public transportation. Limited parking is available in the park, and fills early. Nearby street parking is available in the neighborhood. The park is located at Hunters Point Boulevard and Hawes, and is accessible by MUNI lines 19 and 44. Note: There are two entrances to India Basin Shoreline Park at Hunters Point Boulevard -- Look for the park entrance with the blue Baykeeper flag and the white, horizontal gate.

Who: All ages welcome. This is family-friendly event.

What to bring: Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own gloves, buckets, and water bottles. There will be gloves and trash bags available for those who do not have their own. Please wear closed-toed shoes, sun protection, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

Volunteers will be required to sign a waiver form at the event. Advance registration is appreciated.

If you have any questions about the cleanup, please email Sienna Courter at
