    CRRA Gives Back!

    Join us at the Cove in Paradise Point on August 20, 2017 as the CRRA community gathers to give back to this great state we love!  

    We're cleaning up the Cove, on land and water! Participants can have the chance to be part of the paddleboard patrol, or just walk the shoreline and pick up trash.  

    Be sure to dress cool, wear comfortable shoes and bring drinking water!  There will be a short presentation and instructions provided before we hit the path.  

    This is a family-friendly event. No age limits or skill restrictions on the water-based paddleboard cleanup. Life jackets are required for any participant under the age of 13 and also highly recommended for participants with beginner level swim abilities. All cleanup gear and life jackets will be provided. Please wear clothing that can potentially get wet and water shoes, booties or old tennis shoes to protect your feet.

    All participants will be required to sign waivers for H2O Patrol and I Love a Clean San Diego.  You can print out the attached waivers or be prepared to sign on location.  Each waiver must be printed out separately.
