Description

Isn’t it time to show your favorite beach or creek some love? Join us for Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 21st from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. An international day of volunteer action, Coastal Cleanup Day offers community members a chance to give back to the beautiful beaches that make Santa Barbara County such a wonderful place to live. Get outside, enjoy nature, and remove marine debris from our beaches and waterways.

Volunteers of all ages can participate at any of the 2019 cleanup sites. Pre-registration is not required, but is encouraged.

Please select the site you plan on volunteering at when registering. Each site will have a Beach Captain on hand to provide necessary instructions and supplies. All volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable gloves, bags or buckets, and water bottles to reduce waste and decrease the plastic footprint of the cleanup.

In Santa Barbara County, Coastal Cleanup Day is brought to you by Explore Ecology, with the support of the County of Santa Barbara Resource Recovery and Waste Management and the Cities of Santa Barbara and Goleta.
