What is Coastal Cleanup Day?

California Coastal Cleanup Day, an annual beach and inland waterway cleanup, is the state’s largest volunteer event. In 2010, over 82,500 volunteers removed more than 1.2 million pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, lakes, and waterways. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by Ocean Conservancy and taking place on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events in the world.

Why are Beach Cleanups Important?
California’s coast and waterways have historically been collecting spots for annual accumulations of trash and debris. This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to all manners of marine wildlife, can damage our state’s economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent them, and to have fun!

It's Almost Time!

Coastal Cleanup Day will be Saturday September 19th, nine to noon. Registration is open! See below for a list of cleanup sites.

AND – after you clean up come to our volunteer BBQ at Bodega Dunes for a big thank you lunch!  It starts at NOON and we will have hot dogs, veggie dogs and more!  Join our contest for the most unusual trash, games, and fun!

Days 'till CCD!
