The EcoCenter and Heron's Head Park is a part of the world's largest volunteer effort: Cleaning up the coast

Did you know that the largest volunteer effort in the world is International Coastal Cleanup Day? Locally, it's known as California Coastal Cleanup Day, and this year, LEJ is continuing the tradition it started on the eastern San Francisco shorefront by coordinating efforts at Heron's Head Park and Candlestick State Recreation Area. 

Over 150 people came out to Heron's Head, mostly dominated by CCSF students and faculty. The students who are taking the CCSF sustainability course at the EcoCenter joined in cleanup and gave tours of the EcoCenter afterwards to public and other CCSF students and faculty from Environmental Science, Biology and English departments.

Thanks to all of those who came out and supported! Much appreciations especially to the Golden Gate Parks Conservancy for stepping up coordination efforts across the whole city!
