32nd Bayfront Cleanup
Saving Our Bay One Cigarette, One Bottle Cap,
One Food Wrapper at a Time.
In 2015 more than 1,000 volunteers collected five tons of litter and close to 600 pounds of recycling from our shoreline, lagoon, and San Mateo Creek. We are hoping for even more volunteers in 2016!
The highlight of the event each year is the "Catch of the Day" where volunteers get to show off their most "unusual" finds.
Be prepared to get dirty, have a good time, and help the environment!

If you really like an adventure, wear old water resistant boots and look for "unusual litter" in the "Tidelands Mud Crawl"!
- Prizes for "Butts Out Contest" (most cigarette butts collected)
- Prizes for “Catch of the Day” (most unusual litter!)
- Hamburgers and hotdogs for hungry volunteers – our way of saying “Thank You!”
