coastal cleanup day.pngCoastal Clean-up Day - Tomorrow!

California Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual beach and inland waterway cleanup - it is the State's largest volunteer event. In 2010, over 82,500 volunteers removed more than 1.2 million pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, lakes, and waterways. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by Ocean Conservancy and taking place on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events in the world.

Join us in Belvedere at 9:00am Saturday, September 17, 2011. Meet at San Rafael Avenue & West Shore Road at the drinking fountain and bench. For more information email Barbara at or call (415) 435-0441.
