Volunteers gather for San Francisco Bay clean up

Volunteers pick up trash along the Martin Luther King Jr. Shoreline.

On October 6, dozens of volunteers gathered along the Martin Luther King Jr. Shoreline to pick up trash and learn about the health of the greater San Francisco Bay.

The cleanup was hosted by nonprofit environmental group Save the Bay as part of a series of restoration events held by them and others annually on Bay Day.

At the shoreline site, the group’s restoration operations specialist Kenneth Rangel spoke about the importance of preserving the wetlands, which protect nearby communities from flooding and serve as a home to local wildlife like the Ridgway’s Rail, an endangered bird mainly found on the West Coast.

Meanwhile, volunteers like Rebecca Loya, Jesse Feldman, and Patricia Simons showed up with family members to learn about how they can do their parts to protect the environment.
