Description: 

Come on down and help save the beach!

Join “First Sunday” Ocean Beach clean up with Surfrider San Francisco, a dedicated group of volunteer activists who are passionate about protecting the places they love to spend time. They are a non-profit, grassroots organization working at the local, state, and federal level. Their mission is to keep our ocean, waves, and beaches clean for all to enjoy, and find creative ways to prevent plastic pollution from entering the beach and ocean. Ocean Beach presents a unique problem in regards to trash, as it’s three times the size of all the other beaches in the city. In addition to being a large area, there is insufficient receptacle capacity, which leads to trash coming off the beach but not making it to the landfill.
