xSaturday, September 17. 8:30 AM to Noon: California Coastal Cleanup Day.  Join in this annual statewide-sponsored event to help remove trash and debris from your choice of shoreline areas in Richmond. The plastics that collect along the shores are a special focus due to the dangers they pose to wildlife.  Marine animals can be injured through entanglement or by ingestion. Many types of sea critters have been found stuck in plastic debris such as fishing lines, bags and beverage container rings. Many animals will eat plastic, thinking it is food. When an animal ingests plastic, the debris can block its intestinal passage causing it to starve to death. Cleanup at Marina Bay is sponsored by the Watershed Project with a free BarBQ hosted by County Supervisor John Gioia while East Bay Regional Park District is sponsoring cleanup with snacks and water provided at Point Pinole and Point Isabel Regional Shoreline parks. Volunteers should bring a bucket (for litter pick-up) hat, gloves, refillable water bottle, and sunblock. The sponsors will provide trash bags. Go to East Bay Regional Park District and Watershed Project websites for more information and to register.
