California Coastal Cleanup Day 2019

Join us for the 35th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day in Sonoma County on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

Coastwalk/CCTA is the California Coastal Commission’s designated coordinator for Sonoma County California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Be a part of the solution to the harmful impacts of Marine Debris and volunteer today for Coastal Cleanup Day on Sonoma County’s Coast and Inland waterways.

Every year hundreds of thousands of people across Sonoma County, the California Coast and the world join together to remove millions of pounds of trash from our beaches, shorelines, and inland waterways.

Coastal Cleanup Day protects our communities’ health and beauty, prevents trash from entering our ocean, and through people power ensures that our coastline and inland waterways remain scenic, safe, and healthy for all.
