Volunteers needed to clean up Mission Bay park on Saturday

SAN DIEGO – SeaWorld and San Diego Coastkeeper will team up to keep Mission Bay beautiful with the inaugural Mission Possible: Clean the Bay Day on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The cleanup will take place on Mission Bay Rose Marie Starns Park (formerly South Shores Park) from 8 to 11 am.

The goal is to engage the boating community in an on-the-water cleanup of Mission Bay to remove harmful trash that pollutes water and harms wildlife through entanglement and ingestion.

Participants can bring their boat, kayak or paddleboard to join the on-water effort, either on their own or as a team with family, friends or coworkers. Those who cannot participate on the water can join the shoreline cleanup.

The organizers will award prizes, including yearlong passes to SeaWorld, beluga interactions, penguin tours and more.
