Coastal Cleanup Day is Saturday, September 15th 2018, 9am-Noon.  SGERC will again sponsor the cleanup at San Gregorio State Beach this year. The lagoon has not yet breached, so parts of the beach are not easy to access, but like last year we expect to remove many pounds of trash and recyclables from the beach, picnic, and parking areas.

After a brief orientation, volunteers collect debris and record the trash picked up.  Data collected from these events guide efforts to reduce trash and their impacts on the environment.  Picking up the trash ... well, you immediately see the difference!

Parking for volunteers is free at San Gregorio State Beach.

(Did you know that 80% of trash that enters the ocean from California comes from inland areas?)

Plan on joining us! More information at SMChealth.org/CCD
