World Oceans Day Beach Cleanup at La Jolla Shores

June 8 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

San Diego Coastkeeper hosts a beach cleanup at La Jolla Shores Beach – Kellogg Park, in La Jolla. This beach is very popular with locals and tourists alike, and is a fun, family friendly place to go tidepooling, surfing, snorkelling, kayaking or just hanging out on the beach. Although La Jolla Shores is one of the cleaner beaches in San Diego, we still find a troubling amount of trash along the beach as well as in the surrounding park. Meet in front of the lifeguard tower in the grassy area.

From I-5 North: Take La Jolla Parkway exit. Turns into Torrey Pines Rd. Turn right on La Jolla Shores Dr. Turn left onto Calle Frescota. Cross over Camino del Oro and park in the parking lot by the beach.

From I-5 South: Take La Jolla Village Dr. exit. Turn right onto La Jolla Village Dr. Turn left on Torrey Pines Rd. Take a right on La Jolla Shores Dr. Turn left onto Calle Frescota. Cross over Camino del Oro and park in the parking lot by the beach.

Beach Cleanup Information

  • Meet at the location described, and look for the blue Coastkeeper pop-up tent. That’s where you’ll start your morning by signing in and borrowing cleanup supplies.
  • We will have supplies on hand, but by bringing your own reusable gloves, reusable bag/bucket and/or reusable water bottle, we create less waste in order to remove it.
  • Please wear comfortable clothes, closed-toed shoes and sunscreen. All volunteers (individuals as well as groups) are welcome to participate and must sign this liability waiver. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present at the beginning of the cleanup to sign a liability waiver before the minor can participate.
  • Registration is not required unless a group is larger than 20 people – to register please contact cleanups@sdcoastkeeper.org.
  • As a volunteer, you play an active role in determining the sources of trash on our beaches. During the cleanup, please be prepared to fill out a data card detailing the types of trash that you collected, and make sure to have your trash weighed when you return to the registration table at the end of the cleanup.

Weather Cancellation Policy
If it is lightly raining, we will hold the cleanup. If there are heavy rains, we will cancel the cleanup. To check the status of a cleanup, please see the San Diego Coastkeeper events calendar or visit us on social media.
