Kids and families join in the fun! There are 5 different locations you can join to help cleanup our local community.
Last year about 3,500 volunteers in Santa Cruz & Monterey Counties worked together to prevent 16,827 lbs. of pollution and debris from trashing our Sanctuary, littering our communities and harming marine life. That’s well over 8 tons that was kept from entering the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary in just three hours, on one day! Coastal Cleanup Day is what community is all about.When is Coastal Cleanup Day?
