What Is Coastal Cleanup Day?
California Coastal Cleanup day has been bringing people together for thirty-three years – 1.5 million selfless individuals who volunteer their time to improve the places they cherish. This cleanup, the state’s largest volunteer event, held Saturday September 15th, 2018 is about Californians who value California and its natural resources.
Last year in 2017, coordinators and captains at more than 1,000 sites welcomed 63,500 volunteers who effective removal of 800,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s coast and inland waterways – without you this event could not exist.
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.
