MLK Day of Service at Muir Beach

Join SCA alumni and our Bay Area School Year Program participants for another historic Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. This year we will be joining the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy at Muir Beach. Volunteers will be making a vital contribution in the efforts to restore Redwood Creek and Lagoon at Muir Beach.

Volunteers are needed to restore the tidal lagoon and creek at Muir Beach and to maintain the new native plants along Dias Ridge above. The future of the endangered Coho salmon, steelhead trout, and California red-legged frog are at stake. Help heal this special watershed and protect endangered species. RSVP to join us.
