Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup

August 19, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Heal the Bay for our August Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup in Torrance, CA!

Celebrate National Water Quality Month this August with Heal the Bay. Help us keep our ocean clean and safe for all at our Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup on Saturday, August 19, 2023.  Sign Up! 


Enjoy a day of environmental fun in the sun for the whole family, raffles PRIZES, and important conversations about our local water quality.

The Heal the Bay Beach Team is ecstatic about the opportunity to partner with this month’s cleanup sponsor, Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream, and we’d love it very “mochi” if you joined us on the shore!

The Safe Clean Water Team will also be on the sand to answer all your questions about L.A.’s Safe Clean Water Program, and our city’s initiatives to keep our watershed healthy, and its waters safe, for everyone.

Reserve your bucket today and get energized to make a huge impact.

Love that great feeling you get when you help protect the environment? Mark your calendar for September 23, 2023, and join us on Coastal Cleanup Day, the biggest environmental impact day of the year!

We’ll “SEA” you on the sand!


Cleanup location: 201 Paseo de la Playa Torrance, CA 90277
