SAVE THE DATE - Are you ready for Coastal Cleanup Day 2017??

As we begin the initials steps for the event, we wanted to share some accomplishments and totals from last year's Coastal Cleanup Day! In 2016, we had over 7,500 dedicated San Diegans across the County explored and beautified beaches, canyons, creeks, and parks and worked to remove over 150,000 lbs of debris! San Diego County's Coastal Cleanup Day is part of a statewide and international cleanup effort to enhance and conserve our coast across the world.  

Check out  to see the data entered in from coordinators across the globe and for international totals! 

Want to be a site captain?

We are currently looking for site captains to assist in leading sites throughout the county! 
Site captains lead volunteers at each of the 100 cleanup sites involved in this event each year and we greatly appreciate all of their volunteerism and leadership in the San Diego County community!  If you are interested in joining the Coastal Cleanup Day team, contact Lauren Short at or 619-704-2772.
