Berkeley Marina Shoreline Cleanup

Saturday | February 18, 2017 | 9:00 am — 11:30 am

Shorebird Park Nature Center | 160 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94710

Individuals, families and groups are welcome to join the Berkeley Marina Experience Programs on the third Saturday of each month for small clean-ups that meet at the Shorebird Park Nature Center. We need you !

Unfortunately, rain that cleans your street, washes the trash down the creeks and storm drains and onto our shores. They are continuously covered with trash and need your help.

  • Clean-ups begin at 9 and go until 11:30.
  • Please PRE-REGISTER  so we can email you additional information and waivers for children.
  • Let us know who many are in your group and ability range, so we can pick the right location for you.

On the day of the cleanup:

  • Wear sturdy shoes and dress in layers. We can provide materials but if you can bring your own gloves and buckets it helps.
  • All clean-ups include information about plastics pollution, give you ideas on how to help at home and end with a safety talk.
  • Data is collected at each clean-up, so we have facts to change laws.
  • We will lead you to the location and show you how to deal with the trash and recycling.

If you ‘d like to be part of these clean-ups, just call and let us know you and your friends are interested. We will confirm the date and send you any pertinent information and waivers for those under 18 yrs. old for that day. Call or email to RSVP.

The Ecology Center is a co-sponsor of this month’s shoreline cleanup.
