Earth Day: PCL Neighborhood Cleanup (and BBQ Bikes & Beer!)
PCL Resident Patti White is organizing a neighborhood clean-up day on Earth Day, Saturday, April 21, prior to the BBQ Bikes & Beer event we'll be hosting. Details are below.
Please join us in helping clean up the Frontage Road which butts up against Central Station and the 16th Street Train Station. We will gather at the Frontage Road side entrance to the Pacific Cannery Lofts (access to dirt lot for parking is at 14th and Frontage Road) at 9:00 am. Check in at Loft #152 where you can get gloves, bags and other items that may be useful for cleanup. If you walk from the neighborhood and enter at 12th and Pine Street entrance, look up Patti White and buzz for access. If you enter from the Frontage Road side, you should see our unit number on the outside of the building.
New row of pine trees planted along frontage roadWhat: West Oakland / Central Station Frontage Road EARTH DAY Cleanup
When: EARTH DAY - Saturday, April 21 - starting at 9:00 am and running until we get the job done or 12:00 pm at the latest.
Where: Pacific Cannery Lofts Frontage Road Entrance or Loft #152 (PCL is at 1201 Pine Street at 12th)
Why: There are two reasons I thought this would be a good "starter" event for us in April:
1) The City of Oakland is going to be installing drip irrigation along the pine tree row (you may have noticed many newly planted trees if you've driven by) during the week of April 23 and we want to help facilitate the job by cleaning it up!
2) Because there's another event going on that day starting at 11:00 am at Central Station that we want to piggy back on and encourage you to attend. See attached for more information on Barbeque, Beer & Bikes which runs from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm on the same day!
Please let Patti know if you can attend. We will have gloves and bags available or if you have your own gloves, please bring them along!
Call or write if you have ANY questions. And please - SHARE with friends and neighbors.
