Baykeeper is hosting their annual beach cleanup at India Basin Shoreline Park on Saturday, September 15, 2018, to target the serious trash problem that disproportionately affects San Francisco’s eastern shoreline. California Coastal Cleanup Day is the state’s largest single effort to remove the debris that has accumulated on beaches and inland shorelines over the past year, bringing tens of thousands of volunteers out annually to protect the wildlife and habitat that can be badly damaged by trash pollution.
Holy Hikes will be joining the event and offering a “Bay Clean-up Mass” – we will celebrate the Holy Eucharist while cleaning. This one-day event is part of an ongoing relationship between Holy Hikes, a Christian hiking group, and San Francisco Baykeeper, a nonprofit that has been working to protect the San Francisco Bay from pollution. All are welcome to join this unique opportunity to clean the Bay and celebrate a spirituality that recognizes interdependency with the land and waters.
When: Saturday September 15, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (note time difference)
Where: India Basin Shoreline Park, Hunters Point Blvd & Hawes St, San Francisco, CA 94124
