The Spartans WILL. Global Day of Service returns on Saturday, April 18, 2015, bringing together Spartan alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff from around the world to serve their local communities. We are planning events in both San Francisco and Silicon Valley this year!

What we’re doing:

Registration

Join the fun in cultivating more positive energy around Ocean Beach Coastal habitat and the Fire Pit Recreation Area. We will be helping to restore the raised concrete beds at Ocean Beach. This consists of removing red lava rock and older weed tarps to help prepare the beds for native CA dune species planting.

Date: Saturday, April 18

Time: 10:00AM – 1:00PM

Location: Ocean Beach, Stairwell 24, San Francisco

Beach Cleanup Service Event

The Michigan State Spartans San Francisco Bay Area will be joining the SF Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation for a beach cleanup event at Ocean Beach on Sunday, October 19 from 10am until 12pm. The Surfrider Foundarion is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches, and we are happy to partner with them to help give back a cleaner Ocean Beach to the SF community!

If you have your own work gloves and a bucket to haul away what you collect, please bring them with you. They will have some gloves and buckets but it would help if we bring them in case they do not have enough for everybody.

We are using Eventbrite so that we get an accurate volunteer list for planning purposes, so please grab a ticket for each person in your group if you will be joining us for the event. There is no charge to register.

We will meet at Stairwell 17. There is a large parking lot at Ocean Beach so parking should not be a problem. If you would like to take the bus, use the 5-Fulton bus and exit the bus at Fulton & La Playa. Then walk 1 block West and across the Great Highway to Ocean Beach.

Any questions about the event, send an e-mail to Victoria Vandegrift, Community Service Events Director.
