Sign Up for California Coastal Clean-Up

Coastal Clean-Up Day is September 19th! Don't miss the chance to be apart of California's largest volunteer event when individuals and groups come together at sites organized all over California. Although many groups are now full there are still tons of great opportunities for ALL ages to help clean our waterways, meet amazing people, and feel awesome about the place we live. Last year, nearly 67,000 volunteers removed more than 1,190,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California's beaches, lakes, and waterways. WOW! Below is all the information you will need to help you pick a local spot. 

All volunteers must have a signed waiver. Volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian's signature as well. If you are not able to bring a signed waiver, site captains will have them available at each site. Sign up today!
