Beach Clean Up

*Please send in request 14 days in advance*

We offer free bags and gloves to clean-up participants, but encourage you to bring your own re-usable supplies. Our staff will gladly provide your group with an informative Beach Clean-up Safety/ Ecological Talk. We also conduct a short Marine Debris Awareness Talk in which a staff member will educate your group about the decomposition rate of various items that are found on the beach and recycling. This talk is a great foundation for any beach clean-up. 


ADOPT-A-BEACH

If your group would like to dedicate only 3 days a year to help keep our beach clean, then Adopt-A-Beach is for you. This activity is sponsored by the California Coastal Commission and upon completion of 3 clean-ups your group will receive a certificate of recognition. School groups can fulfill the obligation with a single clean-up. All participants must fill out a waiver each time they hold a beach clean-up.
