Thanks for joining the Cal Alumni Association (CAA) on July 22 for a fun and rewarding day cleaning up the shores of the Berkeley Marina in partnership with the Shorebird Park Nature Center!
CAA Day of Service is a community service project during which UC Berkeley alumni and community members can change how trash and pollution affects local bay ecosystems and the ocean. The rain that cleans our streets also washes trash into our creeks and storm drains. This landfill ultimately ends up on our shores and causes chronic pollution. With your help, we can relieve the shoreline of buildup and protect the Bay Area’s beauty.

2-hour clean-up blocks:
9:00 – 11:30 a.m.
9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
In addition to picking up waste at the Berkeley Marina, Cal alumni, friends, family, and community members learned about the impact plastic is having on our oceans and waterways around the globe, as well as how to safely clean our shores. Participants gave back to their community both at the event and will be able to in the future by integrating these waste and recycling lessons in their own lives.
