Speaking of cleanups: Final plan for tomorrow’s Beach Creeps sweep at Constellation Park

Since last Saturday, when we first mentioned the Alki Beach Creeps Bicycle Club‘s plan for a South Alki cleanup, the event tomorrow has drawn dozens of volunteers, more than a few local business sponsors donating treats and other support, and even Parks Department assistance with post-cleanup pickup. The Facebook event page for the cleanup has info on the final plan – so in case you’re interested in joining, but not a FB user, here are the key points:

*Optional bike ride to the cleanup starting point: Beach Creeps plan to leave El Chupacabra (2620 Alki SW) “no later than 11:30 am”

*Cleanup noon-3 pm (Saturday, March 2)

*Volunteers meet by the Constellation Park octopus sculpture (63rd SW/Beach Drive). Sign in and get your cleanup supplies (courtesy of Puget SoundKeeper Alliance)

*Treat donors include Pioneer Coffee on Alki and Christos On Alki (pizza)

*Seattle Parks plans to pick up the collected trash and debris (organizers are hoping to get a lot of styrofoam off the beach)

*Afterparty at Pioneer Coffee

If you haven’t been to Constellation Park – here’s a map.

    Will you guys be cleaning up those security cameras that someone left all over Alki?

    Isn’t that the area where the sewage pipe broke?

      That was the south side of Harbor West (the condo building on pilings over the water). This is a couple blocks north.

Sorry, comment time is over.
