Coastal Cleanup Day -- Saturday, September 17
Baykeeper is hosting our annual beach cleanup to target the serious marine debris 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 marine wildlife and habitat that can be badly damaged by marine debris. All ages welcome at this family-friendly event.
