CAA’s Day of Service is 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.
On our day of service, we will join together to bring awareness to how marine debris 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 to the ecosystem. With your help, we can relieve the shoreline of buildup and protect the Bay Area’s beauty. Our previous day of service resulted in nearly ten thousand pieces of trash cleared in a three hour span! Cumulatively, we collected 4,391 pieces of plastic and 2,716 pieces of styrofoam, the most damaging items found on the shores. Together we will continue to make a huge impact on the health of the Bay.

In addition to safely cleaning our shores at the Berkeley Marina, Cal alumni, friends, and community members will learn about the impact plastic has on our oceans and waterways around the globe. Participants are encouraged to integrate these waste and recycling lessons into their own lives and give back to their community through action and education.
