On Saturday, September 17th, 2011, from 9:00am until 12noon, over 14,000 Southern Californians will head down to their local beaches and inland waterways on a mission to clear the sand and water of harmful and unsightly pollution. Last year, over 80,000 volunteers from California removed a record 1 million pounds of trash!
This year, we challenge you to beat those records! Sign up now to participate at one of over 60 cleanup sites throughout Los Angeles County. Find the one nearest you and help clean our oceans and beautify your community. Your efforts will be matched by beach cleaners in over 90 countries all working to take a stand against ocean pollution, making Coastal Cleanup Day the largest single-day volunteer event on the planet!
When you participate, you’ll find that Coastal Cleanup Day is not only a great environmental event but also a fun way for individuals, neighborhoods, schools, community and company volunteer groups to get involved. Bring your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers along to spend a day of fun in the sun, compete for the prize for the most unusual item found, and most importantly, be a part of the solution to ocean pollution.
See you at the beach, river, park, lake, or creek!
On September 17th, you can test drive a Ford at Dockweiler State Beach at Imperial Hwy and be entered in a drawing to win a new Ford! For every test drive completed by 9:59 am. Ford will also donate $50 to Heal the Bay to keep L.A.’s beaches clean!
California Coastal Cleanup Day is coordinated in Los Angeles County by Heal the Bay in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission and the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors.
For locations throughout the rest of California, please call 800–COAST–4U or visit the California Coastal Commission.
