VISION
We are building a community authored plan for the future of one of the last remaining undeveloped headlands in the San Francisco Bay Area - Point Molate.

Our mission seeks to convert the former Navy fuel depot into a sustainable rejuvenation of important historical aspects of Pt. Molate with protection and restoration of its rare native species and supporting habitat.

A true 'people's' gathering place to enjoy the wonders of the SF Bay Area, celebrate and display local craft, fruits of the earth, as well as global cultural infusion, and a place for multiple generations to learn and develop tomorrow's sustaining technologies.

With funding from a grant from NOAA,  Baykeeper, with help from Citizens for a Sustainable Pt. Molate, undertook a massive project to remove marine debris from the western shoreline of the San Pablo Peninsula, particularly in Pt. Molate.  The project which targeted drifted creosote infused pilings - many coming from the decaying Red Rock Marina - began in March of 2013 and continued through August of 2013.

COASTAL CLEANUP DAY - SEPTEMBER 20th, 2014
Saturday September 20, 2014 is the annual California Coastal Cleanup with events scheduled throughout the Bay Area, including Richmond.  This is a great opportunity to get out to enjoy our last summer days and make Richmond a more beautiful place.  Pt. Molate Beach will not be a cleanup locale during this event, thanks to the amazing work of Friends of Pt. Molate Beach in keeping the park and beach clean and tidy!  We hope you will participate in one of the three other locales in Richmond.
ADOPT-A-BEACH
AT PT. MOLATE
In partnership with the City of Richmond, CFSPM is sponsoring the Pt. Molate Beach Park Adopt-a-Beach program.  Be a part of this effort to keep the beach ship shape, and provide vital monitoring data to our partners.  CFSPM and the City of Richmond Parks Dept. will be providing docent and adopt-a-beach caretaker training throughout the summer of 2014.

Baykeeper  staff scientist Ian Wren headed the project along with Baykeeper's fleet captain Geoff Potter, along with host of volunteers.  Removal of the toxic debris was critical to ensure a healthy environment for nearby harbor seal rookeries, shorebird populations, and of course... us!!  Ian will be on hand for the Pt. Molate Beach Opening Celebration on April 19th, with wonderful photos of the cleanup project.

It was all hands in the sand! for Pt. Molate Beach Park's grand re-opening on April 19, 2014.   With entertainment provided by the Sonidos Progressivos and food by Up and Under Pub and Grill, Rubicon Bakery, and Catahoula Cafe 1000 people came out to celebrate the re-opening of this glorious beach park.  Willie Agnew, caretaker at Pt. Molate, was honored for his 16 years of service and many conservancy organizations from around the Bay Area hosted information booths.  Keynote speeches from Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia, Betty Soskin from Rosie the Riveter National Park, and others, along with volley ball matches and a children's learning table hosted by Golden Gate Raptor Observatory rounded out the day.   If you haven't been to Pt. Molate Beach Park yet - it's time to go!   .
