Thank you to all the volunteers! Read the preliminary results from September 17th.
If you participated in the Cleanup, we'd love to hear about it! Please fill out a very short (5 min) survey and win a free taco from Rubios, and a chance to win a fabulous prize package.
You can still participate in Coastal Cleanup! Clean up your neighborhood, parks, and local area anytime during the month of September. Trash from inland areas flows downstream to the coast, so cleaning up neighborhood trash prevents marine debris. Gather cleanup supplies from home, download the CleanSwell app (to count your trash, and to have your trash counted!), and clean on your own time. All cleanups that take place during September will count towards our statewide goals.
Also check out our Adopt-a-Beach program to make your cleanups count all year long.
California Coastal Cleanup Day 2022 will take place in person at hundreds of sites across California. Please refer to the map above to find your preferred site – all of the information you will need can be found there.
California Coastal Cleanup is the third Saturday of September. The cleanup brings awareness to the marine litter problem and provides a community event for direct involvement. Join the movement for an environment where people and ecosystems can survive and thrive. Volunteer alongside your families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, and service clubs. If you're not sure how to get started please let us know. Plan to spend a day outside connecting with your community to celebrate California!
The event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by the Ocean Conservancy. California Coastal Cleanup Day is the largest volunteer event in the US and International Coastal Cleanup Day is the largest volunteer event on the planet!
