Every first Saturday of the month, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (unless otherwise noted),we walk a different local beach and clean-up trash. 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 (or rain gear). 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.
For comments, questions or concerns on all things beach cleanup, please email the beach cleanup coordinator at:
|If you are interested in joining Surfrider for a beach clean up please email us if you have any questions otherwise we will see you at the beach!
