Shoreline Trash Takers

Grab your gloves and your goodwill! The Hayward shoreline is a vital part of the San Francisco Bay-Estuary ecosystem and we need your help to maintain this important habitat. The salt marsh needs a little TLC to get rid of litter that has accumulated since our last clean-up. We provide trash bags and have gloves to loan. This is a great way to complete community service hours while enjoying the outdoors and helping your environment. For groups larger than 10 please contact Interpretive Center at (510) 670-7270 or email shoreline@haywardrec.org to confirm participation. Please register online.
