Sept. 16th Coastal Cleanup Day

Save bags!  Bring your own bucket

Coastal Cleanup Day is Saturday, September 16th 9am-Noon.  Join SGERC at San Gregorio State Beach or go to for more info or cleanup locations.

Bring Your Own reusable: bucket, gloves, water bottle, etc.  Also bring sturdy shoes, sunscreen and layered clothing.  Weather can be unpredictable!

After a brief orientation, volunteers work in teams to 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?)
