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 is this Saturday! 9-Noon. Registration is NOW CLOSED! If you would still like to participate, you may drop-in at Bodega Dunes Day Use Area. See you at the Cleanup, Rain or Shine!

UPDATE: Due to a generous donation from Chanslor Ranch we will now be holding our annual volunteer BBQ at Chanslor Ranch from 11-1. We are very excited for the ample parking we will now have, so after you are done at your site head over to Chanslor Ranch for your chance at a raffle prize, some hot dogs, games and more!
