The Pachamama Beach Day

April 27, 2013     9:00 AM | Saturday

Join us for Pachamama Beach Day: Honoring the Ocean, Cleaning the Beach, and Cleansing Ourselves.

We invite you to join us at Baker Beach in San Francisco, on Saturday, April 27th from 9am to noon for a series of fun activities with fellow Pachamama people. To begin we will hold a ceremony to welcome the Spring season, honor the ocean and offer thanks for all they provides us. Afterward, we will be doing a number of actions, including cleaning the beach as well as cleansing ourselves (by jumping into the ocean, for those interested!).

If you would like to be join us at the beach for this celebration, please register using the form at the bottom of this page.

Pachamama Beach Day is part of The Pachamama Alliance Spring Fundraiser, a staff led campaign to raise awareness and money for Pachamama. The combination of the sacred and committed action is a key characteristic of The Pachamama Alliance's work, and the Pachamama Beach Day is an expression of that.

How you can participate:

Come to Baker Beach to help us clean up this national seashore, honoring yourself and the ocean in the process. All are welcome.

Whether or not you can come, please make a contribution to The Pachamama Alliance in honor of this activity - let us know you too care about the beach, the ocean, and the work of The Pachamama Alliance in bringing forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world for all. Any amount that you give from $10 to $10,000 is welcome!

Share this outreach with your community - invite your friends to participate by cleaning the beach with us, and by making a donation in partnership with those that will be cleaning the beach.
