Coastal Clean-Up Day


Saturday, September 15th, 9:00am-12:00pm
Coinciding with the end of the summer beach season, the 34th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students and service groups to work together and care for our fragile marine environment. It is also a fun way to show community support for our shared natural resources and learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent it. Dress in layers and wear sunscreen. We will supply gloves and bags for trash pickup and non-native plant removal. All ages.
