Where

EcoCenter at Heron's Head Park

What

The EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park hosts shoreline cleanups four times a year in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, Earth Day, World Oceans Day, and International Coastal Cleanup Day. Join us in the cleanup as a reminder that together, we have come a long way; our formerly polluted environment has blossomed into the beautiful Heron’s Head Park we enjoy today. Help us celebrate this wonderful transformation and take action to keep it going. By working together, we can build a healthy, sustainable, and just planet. Please bring comfortable clothes, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a reusable water bottle. We provide gloves and bags, but we encourage you to bring your own if you have them to reduce waste generated by the cleanup.

Corporate group workday opportunities are available at the EcoCenter: please contact Melissa Palmer, Volunteer Manager, at melissap@bay.org.

Community Celebration

Date: Saturday, April 22, 2017

Heron's Head Park | 11 am-1 pm

Join the EcoCenter at Heron’s Head Park and our many amazing partners to celebrate Earth Day! Together, we have come a long way; our formerly polluted environment has blossomed into the beautiful Heron’s Head Park we enjoy today. Help us celebrate this wonderful transformation, and take action to keep building a healthy, sustainable, and just planet. After the coastal cleanup at Heron’s Head Park, bring the whole family for a FREE fun-filled day as we celebrate the first 7 years of the EcoCenter with cake, candles, and fun activities.


Check out photos from our last shoreline cleanup in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service. 28 amazing volunteers joined us on January 16 to help remove 187 pounds of trash before it could become marine debris. Due to the recent California King Tide high tide, there was a lot for us to clean up along the shoreline – mainly plastic items such as food and candy wrappers, bottle caps, and wine corks. Check out a few great photos below.

Missed the cleanup? There will be more opportunities to participate coming your way. Check out the dates above for the remaining 2017 cleanups or sign up for our newsletter to stay informed.
