World Ocean Day Berkeley Aquatic Park

June 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Puako

Celebrate the Ocean and San Francisco Bay with Shark Stewards!

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 Alameda 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. We will also collect data on plastic, and any observations of sharks, rays and algae in the lagoon as part of a long term monitoring effort.

Where to Meet
