Help dreams grow along the Richmond shoreline!

Monday, January 18, 2010
Shimada Friendship Park
9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Show your community YOU care - Clean up the Richmond Shoreline. Bring your friends, family, and neighbors to join The Watershed Project, East Bay Regional Park District and Richmond Citizen Shoreline Response in our efforts to beautify our local shoreline. We will be walking a short distance to Meeker Slough along the Bay Trail. You can help collect and tally trash, remove fennel and other invasive species, and plant native trees, shrubs, and flowers.

There will also be fun, engaging interactive displays for all ages (and did we mention the view?!)

We'll provide tools and gloves (but please bring your own if you have them - especially loppers for removing fennel) along with delicious refreshments compliments of our local business partners. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Directions to Shimada Friendship Park in Richmond:
-From I-580W, exit at S. 23rdSt/Marina Bay Pkwy.
-Head towards the Bay onto S. 23rd St.
-Continue on Marina Bay Pkwy and turn left after Breakers into Shimada Friendship Park.
