The My Earth Day Marin Coalition was founded in the fall of 2008 by the Marin County Parks and Open Space District, the City of San Rafael Volunteer Program, the San Rafael Clean Program, the Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership of Marin, and the Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program.
Opportunities abound for those interested in giving back to Mother Nature, but sometimes it is difficult to know where to begin. Inspired by the incredible success of California Coastal Cleanup Day, we saw Earth Day as an opportunity to begin to organize, promote and publicize multiple environmental service projects here in Marin with the goals of:
- Increasing the number of service projects in Marin
- Abating litter in our watersheds (beaches, creeks, parks, open space preserves, cities and towns)
- Restoring trails, watersheds, and sensitive habitat areas
- Removing invasive plants and graffiti
- Encouraging community involvement, inspire youth, and enjoying our beautiful, natural environment!
The My Earth Day Marin Coalition is dedicated to providing meaningful opportunities for people of all ages and experience levels to get involved in their community and environment. We are proud to join Clean Marin and promote these efforts year around!
We hope that your volunteer efforts leave you with a greater understanding of, and appreciation for the incredible land and wildlife of Marin County, and the people who reside here. Together we can make a great difference!
“Let it rain, let it pour, let the sun rise and roar, whatever the weather we are here to serve, to celebrate, nurture, preserve and observe, the endless wonders of earth!” – Marin County Park Ranger Kirk Schroeder
