Residents are encouraged to join a coastal cleanup event in Richmond Saturday that is part of an annual statewide effort.
Volunteers are asked to meet at Shimada Friendship Park at the end of Marina Bay Parkway near the intersection of Peninsula Drive for the cleanup, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon.
Organizers expect thousands of volunteers to attend. All cleanup supplies will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle, bucket or gloves. Volunteers are also asked to wear closed-toed shoes to avoid stepping on sharp objects, as well as a hat or sunscreen.
Volunteers must also sign a waiver form to participate. To save time at the registration table, volunteers can complete their waiver at home and bring it Saturday. (Here are the waivers in English|Espanol)
Also, 15 experienced kayakers are being sought to join the Flotsam Flotilla, a group that heads out on the waters to remove debris from Richmond’s shoreline. Those interested are encouraged to call (661) 373-8337.
At the end of the cleanup, a free lunch for volunteers will be hosted by the Office of Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia.
For any questions or additional information please contact: email@example.com.
The event is sponsored by Wareham Development, Steve’s Auto Care, Daniel Winkler Realty, REI, and the California Coastal Commission.
