Meet on the seawall at the top of the beach. The beach area is near Lumberman's Arch, and the west side of the kids water park. Look for a group with buckets and signage.
It's Earth Day! Let's celebrate by doing a green and great act for our big blue ocean. We'll be cleaning the shoreline at Lumberman's Arch and along the seawall. Dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Cleanup supplies will be provided. Cleanup will run from 12:30-1:30pm, in the last 10 minutes we will be sorting the litter to help divert this shoreline litter from landfill. A zero waste cleanup!
