Emerald Keepers continues to educate and inspire the Coronado community to be more proactive in reducing their carbon footprint, reducing the use of plastics, and protecting our oceans.

To continue their efforts, Emerald Keepers is hosting the Great Pacific Garbage Patch Splatter and Art Auction on Saturday, May 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Coronado Yacht Club.

Come and enjoy a wonderful evening of cocktails and appetizers on the patio/side yard. Bid on an assortment of maritime themed artwork.

Marvel at the creativity and artistry of art created by local artists from plastics collected from the beaches of Coronado. Learn more about the human impact on the oceans, what Coronado can do to lessen it, and contribute to a wonderful cause.
