Trails & Oceans Stewardship Day 2014 at Point Reyes National Seashore
Contact: John Dell'Osso, 415-464-5135
Point Reyes National Seashore and the Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA) will be sponsoring the Trails & Ocean Stewardship Day, this Saturday, June 7, from 10 am to 2:30 pm, at Limantour Beach. Participants are encouraged to bring sunscreen and their own water and picnic lunch.
Volunteer for one of the two stewardship projects scheduled for that day. There will be a trail restoration project with the National Park Service (NPS) Trail Crew members to improve and maintain Muddy Hollow Trail and the south Limantour Beach access trail. The second activity is with NPS staff and our Beach Team to sift debris, haul trash off of the beach and make our oceans and beaches safer.
Safety is our first priority for any beach cleanup. Even the cleanest-looking beach can hide dangers under the sand. Nails, broken glass, hypodermic needles have been found during cleanup days. The possibility exists that debris from the 2011 Japanese earthquake and resultant tsunami may also begin arriving on our shores. Members of school groups, scout troops, and any person under the age of 18 will need a signature from a parent or guardian to participate in the cleanup.
Event sponsors include American Hiking Society, Healthy Parks, Healthy People Bay Area, KIND - Healthy Snacks, and REI San Francisco. Event partners include All One Ocean, Marine Debris Action Team, Marin Horse Council, and Plastic Forever.
For details and to RSVP, contact Jessica Taylor by email or call 415-663-1200, x 304.
