Beach Clean-Ups

We typically hold our monthly community clean-ups on the second Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (unless otherwise noted). Anyone of any age is welcome and invited to help. These clean-ups also provide a source of community volunteer work as required of students in many local schools, clubs and colleges.

So bring your sturdy shoes, water, sunblock. Please bring, if possible, your own reusable cleanup items to cut down on waste we produce in cleaning up as well, such as buckets/reusable bags, work or garden gloves.

Drop-in and groups are welcome! Come on down and help save the beach! Please email us if you have any questions otherwise we will see you at the beach! NOTE: In the event of rain we MIGHT have to re-schedule the beach clean up depending on the conditions. Please check our Facebook Page for updates the morning of the clean up in the event of rain.

Check the schedule and RSVP on Facebook, please share with your friends! For more info email us at: beachcleanup@santacruz.surfrider.org
