California Coastal Cleanup Day

The 35th Anniversary of the California Coastal Cleanup Day is on Saturday, September 21st. The Laguna Beach Police Department, in partnership with the Laguna Ocean Foundation, will be hosting the 1st Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day event at Main Beach near the basketball courts on Saturday, September 21st from 9 am – 12 pm.

Coastal Cleanup Day is an international day of action to protect our oceans, watersheds, and wildlife from trash and debris. Tons of trash gets dumped on our coastal land every year. The garbage includes plastic bottles, plastic bags and packaging, food wrappers and cigarette butts – detracting from the natural beauty of the shore and harming wildlife. California Coastal Cleanup is part of an international campaign focused on keeping trash out of oceans, bays, rivers, and lakes.

Are you interested in being part of this year’s cleanup? It’s easy to participate. No special equipment or experience is necessary, and all are welcome! This massive volunteering effort has an astounding impact on many of our local natural habitats and communities.

To register for this FREE event please visit Coastkeeper Eventbrite online. Once on the website, click the green register button, and select Main Beach Laguna Beach as the location and enter the number of volunteers, then click register. Buckets, bags, and gloves for trash collection will be provided. We hope to see you there!
