Be an Ocean Eco Hero. Get outside and help planet earth! Browse beach and reef cleanups, restoration projects and other events to get involved and lend a helping hand to your beach, reef or forest.
The Clean Water Volunteers and the Hayward Area Parks & Recreation (H.A.R.D.) Volunteers in the Park (VIP) have partnered to help clean up and beautify this community park. There will also be a water testing demonstration! H.A.R.D. provides tools, leadership, snacks, and the satisfaction of knowing you are a V.I.P.
H.A.R.D. asks you to bring bottled water, gloves, and parents/guardians to accompany the youth. Remember to wear work clothes and sturdy shoes (no sandals), long pants, and bring gloves if you have them. We will provide trash pick-up gear, gloves to lend, and tools.
Please note: Gloves will be provided if you do not have your own. We will also have grabbers, bags, and buckets.

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.
Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.
Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
