Coastal Cleanup Day 2015

Quick Links

You REALLY don't wanna miss the

world's biggest beach cleanup.

On Saturday, September 19, more than10,000 volunteers from all over Southern California will do their part to clean up their local beaches, rivers, creeks and parks. And that's just part of the picture: Coastal Cleanup Day happens all around the world–last year, it drew over 600,000 participants!

Here in L.A., Heal the Bay is proud to host over 50 cleanup sites from Malibu to Pasadena, so it's easy to participate even if you don't live near the beach.

Heal the Bay seeks volunteers of all ages and physical abilities. No special equipment or experience is necessary. Site captains will organize a diverse mix of individuals, families, neighborhoods, community groups, schools, faith-based groups, sports teams and businesses.

Help protect what you love. You'll feel better about our environment, and better about yourself!. Please sign up today.


Free volunteer parking available at site parking lots operated by County of Los Angeles -- Torrance, Dockweiler, Venice and Will Rogers. Limited parking passes available at Santa Monica beach lots 1S, 4S and 5S, which will be distributed by CCD volunteers at kiosks.
