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 Tunitas Creek (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…

Then in the early afternoon, comes our big celebration:

at Linda Mar Beach
from 11:00am to 2:30pm

Starting at 11am for the opening Cabrillo/Vallamar Jazz, followed by Terra Nova Pep Band!

More about the Golden Bough:

golden bough logoThis year we will have the pleasure to have the Golden Bough on our stage!
Rooted in the traditional music of the seven Celtic nations (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, The Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), Golden Bough has become a popular and in-demand group on both sides of the Atlantic. Since their formation in 1980, this trio of modern day minstrels has traveled great distances to numerous countries, to bring their music to enthusiastic folk fans the world over. Backing themselves on an array of acoustic instruments; Celtic harp, guitar, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and bodhran, they blend their voices in the pristine harmonies that have become a Golden Bough trademark. To date they have released over 30 recordings. In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional music.
