On Sept 15, 2012 from 9:00 to 11:30am, many of you may choose to step outside and save a fish, bird, or marine mammal by joining the CA Coastal Cleanup Day effort. The Pacifica Beach Coalition thanks you and welcomes you to a growing number of people who are taking action to help the environment and hopefully learn more about what each of us can do on a daily basis.
As the impending storm season approaches, it is even more important for us to clean our street, creek, park, beach and city locations. We are "the coast" and the first rain and every following rain will clean our streets and
send all litter and pollutants into the ocean, where it will kill or harm the ocean ecosystem.
Volunteers will find 31 organized sites in Pacifica for Coastal Cleanup Day with site captains, cleanup supplies and guidance where they can lend a hand. Volunteers can reduce waste by bringing their own buckets and gloves to the cleanup.
This year's CCCD slogan, EVERY PIECE OF TRASH YOU REMOVE REVEALS SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL is a challenge to all of us to get back to nature and end litter everywhere. Litter on our streets, in our parks or parking lots or anywhere is not only hazardous to wildlife, it is unsightly. Pacifica has reduced the amount of litter on our streets but there is still a long way to go.
So, please join us on Saturday for Coastal Cleanup Day from 9:00 to 11:30am for action and from 11:30 - 1:00pm for celebration at Rockaway (surfers beach). And please make a commitment to help every day with your stewardship actions and purchasing power. If every piece of litter has the potential to kill a fish, then we can make a huge difference by joining together and ensuring our streets are litter free on CCCD and every day.
The Pacifica Beach Coalition would like to thank the City of Pacifica and the Public Works Dept for their support, they have been an amazing partner in bringing these City Wide events to fruition and they work tirelessly to keep our city clean. We would also like to acknowledge and thank our major supporters, Recology of the Coast, Pedro Point Surf Club, North Coast County Water District, Pacifica Tribune, San Mateo County - Water Pollution Prevention Program and Safeway. Your continued support has allowed the
Pacifica Beach Coalition to celebrate, educate, beautify, save wildlife and reach more people.
Please help us to reduce waste by bringing your own buckets and gloves to the cleanup. Thank you to Recology of the Coast for collection, disposal of all debris, and financial support.
Happy Coastal Cleanup Day to all.
