Coastal Cleanup Day 2019
September 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Coastal Cleanup Day is an international day of volunteer action to protect our oceans, watersheds and wildlife from trash and debris. Volunteers spend a fun-filled morning exploring outdoor areas in the coastal zone while cleaning up trash and debris before it can make its way in to local watersheds and the beautiful Monterey Bay. Trash and debris negatively impact the environment in many ways. In the San Lorenzo River, they undermine water quality by contributing to elevated bacteria levels, threaten the health of local wildlife and detract from the beauty of our urban river corridor and Santa Cruz Riverwalk park system.
CWC’s trusted partner Save Our Shores is running Coastal Cleanup Day 2019 efforts in Santa Cruz County. In addition to beach cleanups, they are hosting two cleanup sites along the lower San Lorenzo River. Sign up on their website to volunteer on this special day and support a healthy San Lorenzo River!
