Event description
Join us to help remove trash and plastic pollution during the 2021 California Coastal Cleanup Day!

About this event

Please join ASCE OC as we participate in the annual California Coastal Cleanup during the month of September! Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Annually, the California Coastal Cleanup welcomes more than 60,000 volunteers who pick up hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash and recyclables from beaches, lakes, and waterways each year. It brings awareness to the marine litter problem and provides a direct way for the community to make a difference!

Download the CleanSwell app to document the trash collected. Data collection is important and the data input into the app will help the Coastal Commission. If you cannot use the app: download, print, and fill the data card found on the Commission's website then mail the form to the specified address.
