Community Invited to Join Redwood City in “Coastal Cleanup Day” Event

Redwood City, CA - September 10 , 2007 - The Redwood City Pride & Beautification Committee encourages the entire community to participate in California Coastal Cleanup Day, sponsored by the California Coastal Commission and Whole Foods Market. This is the world’s premier annual volunteer event focused on the marine environment, and there is a cleanup location right in Redwood City! It’s a great activity for the entire family, and offers an opportunity to really make a difference by helping to clean up a waterway. This event is being coordinated locally by the San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program.

The community is invited to join the fun and do something great for the environment on Saturday, September 15th, 2007 from 9 am until noon. Redwood City 's Cleanup will focus on Cordilleras Creek. Volunteers from the community can meet in front of Redwood High School, 1968 Old County Road.

There will be a site captain at this location who will hand out all the necessary supplies and instructions. Volunteers should bring or wear sunscreen, wear only closed-toed shoes, and bring a hat and gloves (disposable gloves are provided), and water. During check in, volunteers will get a special data card to tally the items they collect, and will also be given a safety talk by the site captain before starting the cleanup activity. More information about this and other Coastal Cleanup Day sites is available at, which also has information about many other ways the community can prevent pollution of our local water bodies; such as creeks, the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Since the program started in 1985, nearly 700,000 Californians have removed more than 10 million pounds of debris from our state 's shorelines and coast. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by The Ocean Conservancy that takes place on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events of the year. The Redwood City Pride & Beautification Committee urges the community to be a part of this wonderful effort, and volunteer on Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, September 15 th.
