Nearly 1,000 elementary school students from San Francisco and Marin came
together to “rescue” San Francisco’s Ocean Beach on May 17 at the 24th annual
Kids Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup.
“The Ocean Beach Master Plan, because of erosion at south
Ocean Beach, identified the need for some retreat so that the beach
can persist there, also protection of the wastewater infrastructure
there,” said Maggie Wenger, of the SF Planning Department,
during a community meeting in May.
A dozen years ago bonfires on
Ocean Beach were almost
banned, but after a long struggle,
which included the possibility of
by-permit-only burning, the
National Park Service (NPS) will
be putting out additional fire pits
