BEACH AND NEIGHBORHOOD CLEANUPS
San Diego Coastkeeper offers a variety of ways for you to lend a hand picking up trash and preventing marine debris from accumulating in our ocean.
ABOUT SAN DIEGO BEACH AND NEIGHBORHOOD CLEANUPS
Participating in a beach or neighborhood cleanup is a great way to have an immediate positive impact on the environment. By removing trash before it infiltrates our inland and coastal waters, you are helping protect the ocean and marine life from harmful marine debris. Cleanup volunteers collect, identify, and quantify trash to help us understand its origins and composition. This data informs our science, education, and advocacy work to support healthier communities and a cleaner environment.
Since 2007, we have partnered with Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter. Together, collect valuable debris data at beach cleanups up and down the coast. Thanks to volunteers like you, we have one of the longest-running community science marine debris databases.
