Celebrate this International Coastal Clean Up Day & help clean-up the Albany shoreline and Cerrito Creek!
Join the world’s largest volunteer event of its kind! Come out for International Coastal Cleanup with some 378,000+ volunteers around the world on September 20. Connect with your local shoreline in Albany, and connect to the world as we work to protect and clean our oceans, bay and shoreline. Come out and learn about the Albany Bulb, while helping to clean the shoreline, or take your efforts upstream and join the Friends of 5 Creeks for a Creek Clean Up along Cerrito Creek and a Natural History Walk. Learn how urban trash such as Styrofoam, plastics, and other pollutants threaten our delicate bay ecosystem and what you can do to help protect it. Help make a difference in just a couple hours of your time and learn how you can continue your efforts over the whole year.
A free educational program, “Coastal Clean Up Challenge” is available for Albany elementary school students and teachers. Contact us for details.
Wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and bring your own water bottle and gloves if you have them. Snacks provided. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
