California Coastal Cleanup Day is the premier volunteer event focused on the marine environment in the country. Since the program started in 1985,¬†more than¬†800,000 Californians have removed more than 14 million pounds of debris from our State’s shorelines and coast.

Why is Coastal Cleanup Day important?

  • Trash in the ocean compromises human and wildlife health, which affects the livelihoods of millions all over the planet. We all need clean water.
  • Every little piece of paper, cigarette butt or bottle cap that makes its way to street sewers ends up in streams or rivers and eventually down to the ocean.
  • Oceans are the largest part of our water cycle, generating oxygen and rain necessary to sustain life on Earth.

Refreshments and cleanup tools provided. It’s suggested to closed toes shoes and comfortable clothing.
