Coastal Cleanup Month!

By Sep 03, 2020 - Clean-Ups

The County and Explore Ecology are celebrating Coastal Cleanup Day from home! This year Coastal Cleanup Day has been changed to Coastal Cleanup Month. Instead of gathering together at beaches and sites throughout the county on one single day, cleanups will happen every Saturday in September from home.

We can stop potential marine debris from traveling through storm drains into our creeks and ocean. Let’s protect our favorite beaches by picking up trash in our neighborhoods and local natural areas.

Come on out every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to noon on September 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th. Volunteers of all ages can participate. Check out our event page or the Explore Ecology website for more information.

In Santa Barbara County, Coastal Cleanup Day is brought to you by Explore Ecology and the County of Santa Barbara Resource Recovery and Waste Management, with support from the Cities of Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Solvang. The California Coastal Commission organizes the statewide event, and the international event is organized by the Ocean Conservancy.
