Sharp Park Beach extends along the waterfront on either side of Pacifica’s 1,140-foot long municipal pier, one of the most popular fishing sites along the coast. Teeming with wildlife, seabirds and spring wildflowers, the area features the Coastal Trail along the berm between the beach, Laguna Salada wetlands (critical habitat for the endangered San Francisco garter snake and California red-legged frog), and the golf course. Visitors should use caution as the surf and rip currents have a reputation to be powerful and dangerous.
PBC Site Captains Deirdre Finnegan-Martin and Pauline Taini will be conducting the beach cleanup. This dynamic Earth Hero duo bring a notable amount of moxie not only to our Sharp Park cleanups, but also to our mission! In 2008, Deirdre began leading volunteers as Sharp Park Beach’s site captain, then was joined by Pauline. In 2014, Deirdre was recognized by the California State Assembly for her immeasurable contributions in other key roles as the coalition’s former vice president, as Earth Day of Action’s debris collection site manager, and for her inspiring creativity and enthusiasm engaging volunteers in our annual "Build" events that produce environmentally-themed props carried down Pacifica’s Palmetto Avenue by our Earth Heroes during the annual Fog Fest parade.
