Caltrans Shoreline Cleanup

January 28 @ 5:18 pm

Caltrans’ “Protect Every Drop” Campaign Funds Series of Shoreline

Cleanups Throughout East Bay


Partnership Celebrated with June 25 Community Volunteer Event



Volunteers from Caltrans will join the East Bay Regional Park District on Saturday, June 25 to celebrate the launch of a comprehensive environmental education and shoreline cleanup program extending into spring 2017. In an effort to help protect local marine habitats and prevent stormwater pollution, approximately 50 Caltrans and local community volunteers will spend the morning removing trash and debris at Crab Cove and Encinal Beach alongside leadership from the East Bay Regional Park District. This program was made possible through a unique partnership with CBS EcoMedia, which generates financial support for community programs through the power of advertising.

With Caltrans’ support, the East Bay Regional Park District will fund a series of coastal cleanup programs and events throughout the district, including environmental education programs for local students in the 2016-17 school year. Funding also supports transportation and busing for low-income schools to travel to educational programs along the shoreline, which is often an obstacle to out-of-school field trips. 


This initiative is part of Caltrans’ Protect Every Drop campaign, which is a stormwater public education and outreach campaign to educate Californians about the sources and pathways of stormwater pollution, and to encourage behavior to reduce pollutants in order to improve water quality in our streams, rivers, lakes and coastal waters.
