The City of San Rafael and GWC invite you to Coastal Cleanup Day!
Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual event in California and around the country. Everyone helps keep waterways and shorelines clean.
Clean one of San Rafael’s hidden treasures. Join members of the Gallinas Watershed Council, the volunteer neighborhood stewards of Las Gallinas Creek who regularly kayak and clean the creek.
You’ll be amazed how much fun it is cleaning up the creek with canoes, kayaks and rowboats, pulling the trash out as we paddle down the stream.
Bring your own kayak, canoe or rowboat (and life vest), or join a group that will clean on land walking nearby paths. Help remove trash from this sensitive creek and marsh which provide habitat for birds and other wildlife.
Meet 10:30 AM at McInnis Boat Dock.
We align our cleanup with high tide on Gallinas Creek. On Sept 16 that is around 11:15 AM (5.2 feet high).
By land or by sea!
In other words, by canoe, kayak, boat, paddleboard or on foot.
If you want to be on the water bring your watercraft and life vest.
Wear old clothes; boots, or water sandals with heavy socks, old, long sleeved shirt and long pants, gloves.
You will be working in a wet, mucky, marsh environment at high tide. You will mostly likely get your feet and pants wet.
Bring Sun protection, drinking water, a towel and clean shoes for the ride home. We will provide plastic trash bags and gloves and grabbers.
