Special Events

Coastal Cleanup Day:

On the third Saturday of every September volunteers all over the world converge on beaches, shorelines and inland waterways to pick up trash and remove dangerous debris. Considered the largest marine-related volunteer event in the world, Coastal Cleanup Day is a wonderful opportunity to lend a hand and make a significant difference. The Sausalito Lions Club and Friends of the Bay Model provide a free, “Thank You” BBQ for all participating volunteers following the cleanup at the Bay Model Visitor Center in Sausalito.


Over 35 clean-up sites in Marin County are in need of volunteer assistance each year, so if you or anyone you know is interested, please contact Joanne Jarvis at (415) 289-3027 or send an email to
