Alumni Day of Service | Earth Day

The Cal Alumni Association hosts an annual alumni Day of Service as a hands-on community service project during which Cal alumni, family, and friends come together to give back to our Bay Area home while strengthening ties with fellow members of the Berkeley community.

Join us during Earth Day weekend for an important and meaningful day of cleaning the shores of the Berkeley Marina, in partnership with the Shorebird Park Nature Center! Register for one of four two-hour clean-up blocks.

At the Shorebird Park Nature Center, learn how trash and marine debris affect local bay ecosystems and the ocean. The rain that cleans our streets also washes trash into our creeks and storm drains, which ultimately ends up on our shores and causes chronic pollution to the ecosystem. With your help, we can relieve the shoreline of buildup and protect the Bay Area’s beauty. We look forward to seeing you for a gratifying day of work!

Please note: Participants must sign waivers upon arrival. Children under 18 are required to have a parent or guardian sign an additional waiver, made available on-site. If a participant under 18 is attending without a parent/guardian, the waiver must be signed and sent with the participant.

Read and download a copy of the waiver.

Bathroom facilities and water fountain are available at the Nature Center.
