Coastal Cleanup Month

We’re staying close to home these days, but we’re all connected…from the Mountains to the Ocean!

This year, Coastal Cleanup Day will become Coastal Cleanup Month as we spend the entire month of September celebrating our watersheds and coastline with decentralized cleanups and weekly programming. Grab your family or housemates to clean up your street, park, local shoreline, or anywhere else that you call your happy place.

Join Heal the Bay as we come together (at a safe distance) to help protect and clean what we love.



Grab your family or housemates to clean up your neighborhood, street, park, or shoreline any day in September. Register through the button above to stay connected with thousands of other Angelenos hosting their own cleanups and to help us track the amount of trash we’ve kept off our streets and beaches. You’ll also receive tips on conducting a safe, environmentally-friendly, and effective cleanup. Don’t forget to track your trash finds through the  CleanSwell application (designating “Heal the Bay” as the group), or through our physical data card.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: With wildfires burning in the Angeles Forest, air quality may be unhealthy across parts of Los Angeles County. Before you head outside for your cleanup, be sure to check the air quality in your zip code and proceed with caution and care. If it’s safer to stay inside, check out the other ways to get involved with Coastal Cleanup Month below!


Each week will feature a series of events that will bring us together to explore and learn about the various issues facing the diverse regions that make up Los Angeles.  Stay tuned for Knowledge Drops, Panels, and Live Instagram chats featuring experts and organizations working to make LA better for local communities and wildlife alike.


Can’t make it to a cleanup? Help fundraise with Heal the Bay and support our clean water mission! You can fundraise as an individual or create a team (with family, friends, coworkers), and prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers.
