Earth Day 40th Anniversary Day of Action: Coastal Cleanup in Pacifica

The Pacifica Beach Coalition Earth Day event is probably the only event of it’s kind; where an entire community joins together to pick up litter, restore habitat, and make the community a better place for Earth Day.  The event is about action for the EARTH.  Join us on Saturday, April 24 as five thousand volunteers to take action for Earth Day in Pacifica, a town of 39,000.  That is almost 15% of the population.  Over 100 community groups will join together, along with families, young, old, and everybody in between to make their (our) community a better place.  Groups are joining us down the coast and around the Bay Area.  Volunteers will be cleaning up the beaches, bluffs, creeks, streets, parking lots in every corner of Pacifica and in between.  There are gardening events and habitat restoration events at 5 or more places.  In addition to citizens and residents, businesses are joining the event and taking time out of their day to pick up litter, install cigarette urns and trash cans and plant flowers around their businesses.  A post-cleanup celebration will take place at Linda Mar State Beach afterwards with surf music and refreshments.  Representative Jackie Speier will be our honored guest and speaker scheduled between 1.00 and 1.30.

WHEN:  Saturday, April 24th
Beach Cleanup 9:00am - 11:30am
Celebration on Linda Mar State Beach 1:00-3:00
Our hope is that people everywhere will hear about our event and choose to step outside and pick up litter on their street and in their community.  Not alone, Earth Day is about doing things for the Earth with others, whether it be with family, friends or neighbors.
