About this experience

Join us for an evening of beach-cleaning​,​ learning​,​ and eating at one of Seattle's most picturesque and famous spots​,​ Golden Gardens Park. Did you know that millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean worldwide each year? Let’s fight this problem while also enjoying the beach and a truly Seattle summer evening. We will start at the park in the late afternoon with a 15-minute presentation and discussion on the problem of ocean plastic​,​ including insights on the latest research and prevention. Following that will be 45 minutes of cleaning up the beach​,​ including use of a special tool to find microplastic hidden in the sand. Afterward we’ll rest alongside our own roaring beach bonfire and enjoy refreshments​,​ Seattle-style hot dogs​,​ s’mores​,​ and and the best sunset view in the city. OCTO​,​ a Seattle-based not-for-profit organization​,​ operates the global discussion forum on ocean plastic.
