Santa Barbara Channelkeeper's Watershed Brigade will host a dispersed clean-up event April 24-25 to complement Santa Barbara's Virtual Earth Day celebration. The event provides an opportunity for the community to get outside and do something good for the Earth.

The focus of the April 24-25 clean-up is on front country trails and turnouts throughout Santa Barbara, Ojai, and Ventura County.

Channelkeeper’s Watershed Brigade is a community of volunteers dedicated to keeping our local watersheds and beaches clean. Brigade members remove trash from trails, creeks, rivers, urban areas, and beaches; act as environmental stewards; and collect litter data used to help reduce pollution at its source. By sharing their photos and info, volunteers earn points that make them eligible for perks and prizes.

For this dispersed, COVID-safe event, volunteers will head out independently to different trails, front country parking areas, and turnouts along the South Coast to remove trash. Organizers have created a map and sign-up form to ensure that participants target as many trail areas as possible.

Earth Day is April 22, and while this year’s celebration is virtual, the Watershed Brigade invites the community to complement the online festivities by heading outdoors to clean up trash. Making sure that our environment is litter-free is a great way to honor the Earth while supporting Channelkeeper's goal to make water swimmable, fishable, and drinkable for all.

Community members can help the organization achieve this by signing up to clean a trail area. Visit for information or email [email protected]
