The Problem

The trash from park visitors litters the trails and eventually ends up in the ocean and bay. It can also harm the wildlife in the area.

Our Plan

We'd like to spend a few hours on the park trails removing litter. Join us on July 31, 2022, from 2-5 PM. We will provide gloves and trash pickers. Message us for details.
