They’re Not Just Big Ashtrays – It’s Time To Clean Up Your Beach

Go clean a beach this weekend.

Date(s) – 09/19/2015
All Day


Every year, on the third Saturday in September, people meet at sites all over California to take part in the State’s largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day. In 2014, nearly 67,000 volunteers removed more than 1,190,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes, and waterways. Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs, and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California’s fabulous coast and waterways. The event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by the Ocean Conservancy, which is the largest volunteer event on the planet!

Find a cleanup site on our Statewide Map, or contact the Coastal Cleanup Day county coordinator for your county.
