We’ll work to get the Civic Center grounds back into tip-top shape after the most extensive period of use all year, the Marin County Fair. We’ll focus on cleanup of the perimeter areas of the 100 acre property, where trash can blow into sensitive wildlife areas of Las Gallinas Creek. All skill levels are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. All ages are welcome; anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water. Snacks and extra water will be provided. RSVP’s are appreciated but not required. Questions or to RSVP: Contact Volunteer Coordinator Kirk Schroeder at KSchroeder@marincounty.org or (415) 763-2977. Meet in front of the Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium (10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael). DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for North San Pedro Rd (if coming from Hwy 101 North, follow the signs to the Civic Center and to North San Pedro Rd). Once on North San Pedro Rd, turn left at stop light onto Civic Center Drive and follow for 0.5 mile. Turn right onto Avenue of the Flags; parking is available in the lot adjacent to Civic Center Dr and in front of the Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium.
