A message from Heal the Bay.  Thousands of people will amass beaches, rivers, parks, schools and watersheds throughout the state of California (half a million in total around the planet!) on Saturday, September 16 for Coastal Cleanup Day – the world’s largest volunteer day to protect the ocean.


Coming together — a global movement comprised of local communities and organizations — we’ll make a big dent in removing trash and debris from local habitats, cities and neighborhoods.



On top of creating a cleaner environment, all of the items that volunteers pick up are recorded to raise even more awareness about our pollution challenges. At Coastal Cleanup Day 2016, it was reported that over half a million people picked up 18.3 million pounds of trash and debris in only a few hours. There’s truly power in numbers.
