Be hands-on in removing plastic from our bay. Join the Berkeley Marina Experience Programs for this month’s shoreline clean-up! We’ll head out to collect litter and record data, which will help change laws to improve the health of our ecosystem. An expert from Clean Water Action will share updates on California’s bag ban – a critical plastic pollution issue and November ballot item. There will be a giant plastic bag art creation to inspire you! We’ll have a drawing & prizes for participants.

Wear sturdy tie on shoes — no sandals, flip flops or crocks.
Wear pants not shorts you might be kneeling on rocks/sand/dirt.
 Dress like an onion so you can peel off the layers as the temperature rises. It can be cold in the morning, and warmer in the afternoon and windy.
People should bring: your own reusable water bottle and a hat, and sunscreen. Your own gloves and a reusable bucket — if you do not have them they will be provided.
All participants need to sign waivers, and children under the age of 18 need to have their parent sign their waiver. Pre-register by email: naturecenter [at] cityofberkeley.info

Please note how many people will be in your party and what ages. We hope you will join us!
