Event description


Formerly known as Coastal Cleanup Day and Creek Day - this year ECOSLO has joined forces with the Central Coast Partners for Water Quality to bring you an even bigger and better event - SLO County Creeks to Coast Cleanup! This year, join us as we track data and cleanup not only our beautiful coastline, but several inland creeks, lakes, and parks throughout SLO County.

Since 2005, ECOSLO coordinates beach cleanups from San Simeon to Nipomo as part of an international day of cleanup. Even though Central Coast beaches are cleaner than some, last year we removed nearly 6,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, waterways and lakes.

For the past 10 years, Central Coast Partners for Water Quality have been hosting Creek Day in late September. They've been tackling the creeks and inland sites - working to picked up heavy loads of trash here to work to prevent that debris from eventually finding its way to the ocean.

This year, we're combining to bring all of SLO County together to clean our beautiful watersheds and coastline - from the creeks to the coast!

Please click 'Register' to view over 40 sites available to volunteer at. Locations are listed from North county to South county. Complete your registration and you'll be confirmed for that location!

Please check our event page for more information such as: site map & directions, waiver, event flyers and graphics, local sponsors, and many more details on the cleanup.

Please note that we ask you to signup online via this Eventbrite registration as it helps us anticipate supplies needed for each site. You do not need to bring your ticket with you.

This year you are able to add a donation with your ticket which will go toward supporting all data-driven cleanups that ECOSLO hosts throughout the year! Your donation makes a big difference in making the work of our nonprofit in the SLO County community possible - thank you in advance. And, thank you for supporting Creeks to Coast Cleanup 2019!


Are there minimum age requirements to participate?

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers under the age of 18 are required to have a waiver signed by an adult. If an adult is not coming with you, please have a parent or guardian sign the form in advance and bring it with you. You will soon be able to download a waiver on our website.
