In September 2013, the Point Reyes National Seashore hosted a beach cleanup day. Thirty-nine volunteers ignored the rain to collect over 100 pounds in garbage and beach debris.
The event is again scheduled on the third Saturday in September, the 20th, and anyone that wishes to participate can meet at the Kenneth C. Patrick Visitors Center at Drakes Beach at 10 am. Supplies for cleaning the beach will be provided.
This family event is sponsored by the National Parks Service. Volunteers should bring sunscreen, a lunch, and water in an environmentally safe containers.
The event is held in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission annual event that has, to date, removed 12 million pounds of debris from 700 cleanup sites.
