Fun For the Whole Family at the 2001 Annual Beach Cleanup at Point Reyes National Seashore
Contact: Beth Brindle, 415-464-5130
Join Point Reyes National Seashore in its annual Beach Clean. Last year residents throughout Marin County collected over 17,000 pounds of trash and 3,000 pounds of recyclable materials! Come get empowered and do something positive for the environment. Tallies will be noted for the kinds of trash collected. The California Coastal Commission collects data to document the types of pollution on our beaches and their potential points of origin. You can make a difference.
This year, the event is set for Saturday, September 15th. Participants will meet at the Limantour Beach parking lot at 9:00 am. Wear outdoor attire; layered clothing, sunscreen, hat, and bring water and garden gloves if you have them. Come have fun at the beach and tell your friends or bring a group.
