On Saturday, September 21, Point Reyes National Seashore is joining with the California Coastal Commission in hosting a beach for the annual California Coastal Cleanup Day, and this year the beach selected is the beautiful Limantour Beach. We will meet at the Limantour Beach parking lot at 9:30 am. We plan to end at about 1 pm.
Participants will need sign a waiver at event. Those under 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by a legal parent or guardian; if you need a waiver sent to you for your child (electronic or mail), please contact John Reeves, the beach captain, at 415-464-5203 or by email.
Due to variable weather conditions in our park, dress in layers and have a hat. Bring gloves for handling trash. You should also have snacks and water, antibiotic hand lotion to use before eating, and sunscreen with you when you arrive.
Come join us in cleaning up a beach at yet another one of those "most beautiful places in the world," Point Reyes National Seashore.
