Coastal Cleanup 2020

Clean the Shore from Your Front Door!

Now extended through Friday, October 30, 2020

» Event Registration «

This year, the 36th Annual California Coastal Cleanup will take place – from home! Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, hosting traditional cleanup with large gatherings of volunteers at our parks is not safe. However, you can honor the spirit and intention of the cleanup while staying close to home and following public health guidelines. Trash in the streets turns to trash on the beach once the rains begin. Not to mention, cleaning neighborhoods provides a valuable service to the coast and our communities alike!
