This fun-filled, dynamic event offers a great way to get active while giving to a wonderful park, and giving to yourself! We will begin with service projects that will focus on beach clean-up, landscape maintenance, and habitat restoration. At noon we will switch gears and enjoy a 45-minute yoga class on a flat grassy area beside the bay. The class will be led by professional yoga teacher Daniel Rauck and will be suitable for all ages and ability levels. Free lunch provided by Whole Foods Market at 1pm. This is a Healthy Parks, Healthy People event with support from Lift Levantate through a Measure A Breathe/Respira Community Grant. We have joined forces with HPHP and Lift Levantate because we share a common goal: To increase opportunities to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities through exercise and healthy eating habits. Dress in layers you can get dirty and wear sturdy shoes for the service work. Bring comfortable clothes and a mat or towel for yoga. We will provide water, snacks, tools, and a limited number of extra yoga mats. No pets (except service animals) are allowed at McNears Beach Park. Questions or to RSVP: Contact Volunteer Coordinator Kirk Schroeder at (415) 763-2977 or KSchroeder@marincounty.org. Park entrance is free. If interested, shuttle service will be provided from Pickleweed Park at 9:30am, otherwise meet at the snack bar in McNears Beach Park in San Rafael (201 Cantera Way).
