    Coastal Cleanup Month

    Coastal Clean-Up Day is now Coastal Cleanup Month! Instead of gathering together at beaches and sites throughout the County on a single day, let's protect the coast from home by cleaning up our neighborhoods. Cleanups will occur every Saturday from 9 to Noon on September 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. You can participate in one or all of the cleanups. Be sure to record what you find so your litter is included in the statewide count. Learn how at our website: ExploreEcology.org/Coastal-Cleanup-Day/.
