Beach and Coastal Cleanups

Our next coastal cleanup will be on Saturday, June 4 in celebration of World Oceans Day!

Join us and our partners from SF Recreation and Parks Department to remove small everyday items like straws, wrappers, cigarette butts, and other plastic trash from the Bay ecosystem. We love working with so many of you who are also dedicated to a trash-free Bay.
