Albany Earth Day Clean Up & Celebration

April 18 @ 9:00 am - Event Details

Celebrate this earth day by helping clean up Albany Beach and the Bulb. Join us to pick up litter along the waterfront and create fun art with objects found. Learn about local efforts to protect our watersheds, wildlife in SF Bay, and our oceans.
FREE refreshments will be provided for nourishment as you work hard to clean up our environment! We will provide tools and gloves. If you have your own pair of gloves and a bucket, please bring them so everyone gets a chance to pitch in. Wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and bring your own water bottle if you have one. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Groups of 10 or more should pre-register, see contact information below.
This event is sponsored by The Watershed Project in partnership with EBRPD and the City of Albany.
