Volunteer Beach Clean-up Thanksgiving Day
National Park Service Officials anticipate that the high tide on the morning of November 22nd, Thanksgiving Day, may deposit small tar balls and minor amounts of oil at Ocean Beach.
Therefore, the City and County of San Francisco, together with the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Park Service, will coordinate a volunteer beach clean-up to sweep the area for newly deposited oil spill debris. This opportunity is only open to volunteers who have attended training and received a Cosco Busan Disaster Service Worker Identification Card.
Date: Thursday, November 22nd
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Locations: Report to either of the two locations listed below (Fire Trucks will mark the staging areas):
1. Lincoln Way and Ocean Beach Parking Area
2. Sloat Blvd and Ocean Beach Parking Area
Details: Only volunteers with a Cosco Busan Disaster Service Worker Identification Card will be permitted to participate in this beach clean-up activity. Since the amount of debris is likely to be minor, there are no plans to close the beach or to deploy volunteers in full personal protective gear. Volunteers will be provided with the amount of protective equipment necessary in relation to the amount of debris. Volunteers will be provided with gloves, booties, scoops, hair mats and buckets. Lunch will not be provided at this deployment.
If there is a need for additional volunteer deployment in the coming weeks, information will be posted here and on the 311 website, www.sfgov.org/311. Please check back regularly for the most up to date information or call 3-1-1.
