heal the bay coastal cleanup day 2017 Los Angeles County

Save the Date!
Thousands of people will amass beaches, rivers, parks and public places throughout the state of California (half a million in total around the planet!) on Saturday, September 16 for “the world’s largest volunteer day” Coastal Cleanup Day.

Coming together — a global movement comprised of local communities and organizations — we’ll make a big dent in removing trash and debris from natural habitats, cities and neighborhoods.

On top of creating a cleaner environment, all of the items that volunteers pick up are recorded to raise even more awareness about our pollution challenges. At Coastal Cleanup Day 2016, it was reported that over half a million people picked up 18.3 million pounds of trash and debris in only a few hours. There’s truly power in numbers.

Once again Heal the Bay will proudly coordinate cleanup locations in Los Angeles County in association with Ocean Conservancy and California Coastal Commission.

Check back soon to register for Coastal Cleanup Day or sign up to receive an alert when registration opens.
