Let’s face it our roadways get trashed! As an unincorporated gateway community to three national parks, three state parks, open space, and agricultural lands, as well as a residential community, West Marin is a hot spot for Bay Area tourism. While tourism helps support the local economy, we also notice we get a lot of trash piling up along the roadsides after the busy summer tourist season.
This community clean up effort helps support safer wildlife corridors, coastal and riparian zones, recreational opportunities, and gets our community outside to protect what we love about West Marin.
In an effort to clean up the watershed before the winter rains we are rallying our community to help and adopt a roadside to clean up. There are two ways to get involved.
1) Groups, like nonprofits, associations, clubs, friends can create a team and adopt a West Marin roadside to clean between September 13th - 18th, 2021. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a group that would like to adopt a roadside.
2) Join EAC's team on Coastal Clean Up Day (Sat., Sept. 18) where we will cover various locations including Platform Bridge Road, Point Reyes Station, White House Pool, and the Giacomini Wetlands.
