September Is Coastal Cleanup Month 

Every year, volunteers all over the state gather for California Coastal Cleanup Day: Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 9 a.m.-Noon. Prior to the coronavirus crisis, clean up events attracted huge numbers of volunteers. The clean up has been so popular that the day expanded to an entire month of ocean and waterway awareness and care.

In 2019, more than 74,000 volunteers picked up more than 900,000 pounds of trash from beaches and waterways throughout California. This year, Heal the Bay, which organizes local cleanup events, is limiting participation at group events to meet COVID-19 safety guidelines, but the non-profit is also urging volunteers to participate on their own.

Heal the Bay is encouraging self-guided beach and neighborhood cleanups for this year’s Coastal Cleanup Month.. To take part, start anytime and anywhere on any beach, or along any creek or waterway. On Coastal Cleanup Day (Saturday, September 18 from 9 am – Noon), Heal the Bay will be hosting limited capacity in-person group cleanups at 25+ coastal, inland, and river sites.
