WHY ARE BEACH CLEAN UPS 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 fatal to all manner of marine wildlife, damages our State’s economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Coastal Cleanup Day is fun! It 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 and impact future public policy to protect our coastline and environment.
