Join the 14th Annual ECOFEST – Sat. April 21st 11AM

Every year, Pacifica Beach Coalition organizes the largest volunteer community event of San Mateo county for Earth Day.

 

The first part of our Earth Day of Action starts in the morning with volunteering actions happening along our beautiful coastline from Ft. Funston (San Francisco) to San Gregorio (Half Moon Bay). Our eco-friendly projects include trash pick up on beaches, parks and streets as well as planting, habitat restoration, gardening and more…

More about the EarthCapades

We love the EarthCapades and we are very glad to have them again at the EcoFest! The EarthCapades effectively weaves comedy and circus skills with clear lessons about Earth science and positive environmental choices to demonstrate that Every Day is Earth Day. Their message goes hand in hand with ours and we hope you will enjoy their show as much as we do.

——————— HOW TO GET THERE ———————

FREE BEACH SHUTTLE BUS and FREE PARKING

Parking near the Taco Bell will be very limited so please think about alternative way to come to the EcoFest. We will have free beach shuttle service and free parking at Cabrillo School 601 Crespi Drive.
Handicapped parking spots available near the Taco Bell.

The Beach Shuttle will drive from Cabrillo to Hwy one and go in the main parking lot, drop off in the corner of the main lot. It will then get back on Hwy 1 to the right, turn left on Linda Mar Blvd and turn left on DeSolo and left on Crespi and back to the Cabrillo stop.
There are two shuttles that will be spaced about 5 minutes apart.

 

It is a free event, fun and highly educational for families and individual of all ages. You will learn about the sea otters and how Pacifica Beach Coalition as well as other members of the community are trying to protect these adorable mammals.
