    3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Come join Haley Canales on the water at one of our Marine Protected Areas leading a clean up in the channel and along the banks of the Elkhorn Slough. Register to attend and meet us at Kayak Connection in Moss Landing. This event is also open to the public.

We have a very specific and limited number of spots available, so please only register if you are absolutely sure you can attend.

Please arrive at the Moss Landing Kayak Connection location (2370 CA-1, Moss Landing, CA 95039) approximately 30 minutes early so that we can get everyone squared away and maximize our time on the water.  Kayak Connection is graciously supplying all of the kayaking supplies (kayaks, life jackets, etc.). Bathrooms and a sink for water will be available.
We will be using double, open-top kayaks so that we can easily place debris on top of the boats. This means your legs will be exposed to open air/water. Please bring plenty of layers, and if you have any quick dry clothing and or dry bags for valuable items, those are highly recommended. If you do not have quick dry clothing, we suggest wearing other synthetic fabrics and highly discourage you from wearing any cotton in any of your layers. We also recommend leaving anything that you don’t want getting wet in your car, and you can leave your keys with Kayak Connection staff. Be sure to bring a full reusable water bottle and snacks with you.

Please be sure to:

      1. Ensure that all participants sign an SOS volunteer waiver and submit to SOS staff after the cleanup. Anyone under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardians signature and must have adult supervision throughout the event.
      2. Encourage participants to collect data by using the free Save Our Shores Marine Tally App (AppleGoogle) or by using a data card and filling out this form. This is best completed after the cleanup when you are back on land.
      3. Complete an Event Report Back form and send to Emily after.
      4. Record your hours.
      5. Return your supplies to the office ASAP and clean your buckets.
