Albany Beach | 1 Buchanan St,, Albany, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Come out to the last Albany Landfill Dog Owners Group (ALDOG) beach cleanup of 2014; there will be a free public sand globe workshop on Albany Beach.
Why Sand Globes? Nature artist Zach Pine says: “I invented my technique for making sand globes in 2000, and have taught over a thousand people how to make them. In five minutes, I can teach the basic technique; it usually takes beginners about ten minutes to make a grapefruit-sized globe. The process of making them feels great, and combining beach cleanup with globe-making evokes a wonderful feeling of environmental and social connection.”
For the beach cleanup, bring your own buckets and gloves or use theirs. Sieves are very handy for screening the tiny, nasty stuff. Their last event, in July 2014, brought in 650 pounds of trash, and people of all ages learned to make sand globes, then had a great time making beach sculptures and creating globe-tossing games. Please note, this is an off-leash dog beach.
Directions and Parking: > Map Parking is free for beach cleaners in the lot at the foot of Buchanan, courtesy of Golden Gate Fields. Park, walk through the eucalyptus grove, and head to their sign-in table.
