San Francisco employees volunteer for Angel Island clean up

Published Nov. 20, 2019

At Angel Island, San Francisco District volunteers hauled out an estimated 600 pounds of trash and recyclables during the annual California Coastal Cleanup Sept. 21. More than 50 volunteers signed up for the Saturday work, boarding the district-operated vessel M/V John A.B. Dillard, Jr., at 8 a.m. for a 20-minute voyage across the Bay, with views of Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline. The half-mile beach on Angel Island was one of more than 800 sites where cleanups took place in a state-wide volunteer effort. Serving every year as the Coastal Cleanup volunteer coordinator for Marin County was SPN Park Ranger Joanne Jarvis. Overall across the state, cleanups took place at beaches, rivers, creeks and parks with more than 80,000 volunteers joining the effort. It's one of California's biggest volunteer events.
