Beach Survey and Clean Up
December 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us every second Sunday at Aquatic Park, San Francisco.
The Aquatic Park Stewards program is helping lead marine debris prevention through beach clean-up, quantifying marine debris, and wildlife and supporting our partners, the National Park Service. The school program brings underserved youth to the San Francisco appreciating and learning about marine ecosystems, threats and solutions. Join us cleaning and supporting Aquatic Park National Marine Heritage Area. Volunteer now!
Community beach clean ups are every second Sunday at 0900 at Aquatic Park. Meet outside the Dolphin Club, west end.

Our student film Hang Onto Your Butts, won the first prize in the middle school competition at the International Ocean Film Festival, San Francisco! The kids of Francisco Middle School and other San Francisco City Schools have been helping clean, quantify and recycle marine debris and learn about wildlife and ecosystems since 2015 in our Shark Watch education program.
With our partners* our aim is to reduce plastic pollution in the Bay Tributaries, San Francisco Bay and adjacent beaches through direct action, education and policy. This campaign aims to raise awareness about the environmental impact of cigarette butt litter on our oceans, waves and beaches, and to help eliminate cigarette butt litter in San Francisco County and beyond to the Bay and Pacific Ocean. Commonly littered on our sidewalks and streets, butts end up in our storm drains, flowing to our streams, rivers, bays, lagoons and ultimately the ocean.
Partnering with the National Parks Service we are taking a beachhead by cleaning up Aquatic Park Beach, conducting beach clean ups, quantifying plastic pollution, marine debris and keeping the cigarette butts. This pilot project will help reduce butt waste in the marine environment, collect data and create an education program.
These clean ups typically take about one hour and are fun team building events giving back to our community. Companies and corporate groups welcome!

Donate $10 to support the Healthy Bay Program to fund gloves, tools and clean up materials. A $100 donation adopts a butt urn to directly solve this problem.
