Earth Day Shoreline Clean Up

Published by under Albany Beach

Looks like Bulb will be a busy spot this Saturday.

Here is some information on the planned Albany Shoreline Clean Up.

Celebrate this Earth Day by helping to clean-up the Albany shoreline!
Want to give back to the Earth this Earth Day? Come out and learn about the natural and social history of the Albany Bulb, while helping to clean the shoreline. Learn about the amazing plants and animals who call this shoreline home and how urban trash such as Styrofoam and plastics, and other pollutants threaten this delicate bay ecosystem. Give just a couple of hours of your time to learn a little about our part of the Earth and lend a hand so that together we can make a difference in the health of our environment.
Wear sturdy shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and bring your own water bottle and gloves if you have them. Snacks provided. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This event is sponsored by the City of Albany and coordinated by the Watershed Project.

When: Saturday April 19th, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Oil Spill Updates

Published by under Oil Spill

It appears that the Albany Beach will remain closed for today. There are no new updates on the City of Albany website but ebparks.org is reporting “all parks open, some beach access limited”, but then goes on to say the Eastshore State Park is closed November 12. How much of the bulb is part of the Eastshore State Park, I’m not sure, but I believe it is the upper level plateau and the trails that lead out to the lower point (“the bulb”).

On Sunday Nov. 11, Berkeley City issued a proclamation restricting access to all Berkeley waterfront areas until further notice. Visitors are being asked to stay 50 feet away from the shoreline.
