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/.
Due to COVID-19 your cleanups should be self-guided and close to home. Local parks, shores, creeks, streets, sidewalks, natural areas, and trails are great choices. Practice physical distancing and strictly follow both local ordinances and the set of guidelines provided on the California Coastal Commission website to make this a safe cleanup for all! Special thanks to the County of Santa Barbara Resource Recovery and Waste Management Division for partnering with us for Coastal Cleanup Month.
