Albany Beach cleanup & free sand globe workshop

ORGANIZATION: POINT ISABEL DOG OWNERS AND FRIENDS

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 17 people are interested

Good for all ages! No need to register...just show up! You can park for just one dollar at Golden Gate Fields racetrack that day. (Enter on Buchanan Street and then walk back out to our sign-in table on the bluff overlooking the beach.)

Bring a sieve, bucket, and gloves if you have them or use ours. Bring a water bottle...there's no drinking water at the Albany waterfront.

Wear shoes...there may be sharp items.

Note that there are often dogs playing in the water. If you bring your own dog, please don't let it interfere with beach cleaners or sand globe makers.

Environmental artist Zach Pine will lead a free, fun workshop for beach cleaners on how to make sand globes (big balls of sand the size of a small melon).

The cleanup along the paved shoreline trail and the sand globe workshop area are wheelchair-accessible. (We'll try to have "grabbers" available to make it easier to pick up trash seated or standing.) The new bathrooms are accessible.

This beach cleanup is coordinated by Albany Landfill Dog Owners Group (ALDOG) in collaboration with East Bay Regional Park District, the Albany Beach kiteboarding community, Love the Bulb, Samavesha Community Program, Wholly H20, and environmental artist Zach Pine.

ALDOG is a California Coastal Commission adopter of Albany Beach and a project of Point Isabel Dog Owners (PIDO), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Mission Statement

Point Isabel Dog Owners (PIDO) works with the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) to maintain and preserve Point Isabel as a multi-use park that welcomes off-leash recreational dogwalking; educates park visitors about park rules and concerns; preserves the natural environment at Point Isabel; and supports other groups in their efforts to preserve on-leash and off-leash recreational dogwalking

Description

Point Isabel Dog Owners Association and Friends (PIDO) formed in 1985 to advocate for recreational dogwalking at Point Isabel and around the San Francisco Bay Area. PIDO became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2000 and has approximately 6,000 members.

PIDO works closely with the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) to keep Point Isabel clean and safe through education (online, email, and The PIDO Pointer newsletter, which is published three times a year), monthly park cleanups, monthly weed-pulls, and an annual contribution to the EBRPD for poop pickup bags.

PIDO is the fiscal sponsor of Albany Landfill Dog Owners Group (ALDOG), which is a California Coastal Commission adopter of Albany Beach and coordinates three major cleanups at Albany Beach every year. In 2017, ALDOG was awarded an Alameda Countywide Clean Water Program 2017 Community Stewardship Grant to fund "Sift the Beach," an October 8, 2017, volunteer event in collaboration with EBRPD and Sea Turtles Forever to sift toxic microplastics from the sand at Albany Beach before they leach into San Francisco Bay.
