Clean Creeks for Coho: Coastal Cleanup Day
Saturday, September 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Hosted by the Salmon Protection And Watershed Network (SPAWN) and California State Parks. Volunteers will walk the Cross Marin Trail and the edge of Lagunitas Creek in Samuel P. Taylor State Park picking up trash and debris. Running through Marin County, the Lagunitas Creek Watershed supports the largest documented population of Central California Coast Coho salmon, a critically endangered species that faces extinction.
Meet at 9am at the Samuel P. Taylor Azalea picnic area by first set of bathrooms just beyond the entrance kiosk. (Park entrance fee will be waived for Coastal Cleanup Volunteers.)
Materials are provided, but you can help us reduce waste by bringing a bucket, reusable bags, and reusable gloves with you for the Cleanup. Wear boots or shoes that can get dirty. There will be a free BBQ at noon.
About Coastal Cleanup Day
International Coastal Cleanup Day, taking place on Saturday, September 21, is one of the world’s largest annual preservation and protection events and volunteer efforts for our ocean, marine wildlife and waterways. On this international day of action, volunteers around the globe will join Turtle Island Restoration Network and our partners to remove massive amounts of debris that accumulate on our beaches and inland shorelines. Together, we can help protect marine habitat! Last year, nearly one billion volunteers removed over 23 million pounds of trash from the beaches and creeks around the world. Join a million others by bringing your families and friends to one of many locations and help tackle ocean pollution.
