We did it! Coastal Cleanup Day was a success from Summit to Sea. Thank you to all who joined our Los Angeles County Coastal Cleanups.

On Saturday September 23, 2023, more than 7,200 Heal the Bay volunteers removed over 15,000 lbs. of trash and 404 lbs. of recycling from 95 miles of beach, river, underwater, and trail cleanup sites! Check out our 2023 CCD Wrap-Up Blog for a detailed break-down by the numbers of our County wide and State-wide impact.
