Every year, on the third Saturday in September, people join together at sites all over California to take part in the State’s largest volunteer event: California Coastal Cleanup Day. The event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by the Ocean Conservancy, which is the largest volunteer event on the planet!
In 2012, >65,000 volunteers removed almost 770,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes, and waterways. The impact on our daily lives is incredible.
Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs, and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California’s fabulous coast and waterways.
Join GreenTown Los Altos for Coastal Cleanup Day on Permanente Creek, Sept. 21, 9AM-noon near St Francis High School. Register today to be part of the solution to ocean pollution
We’ll tally the types of trash we find and report the information as part of California Coastal Cleanup Day. We’ll learn about the impact of trash on water quality in the creek and on the wild life that lives there. Wear work clothes and sturdy shoes that can get dirty, and bring gloves if you have them. We’ll provide trash bags and litter grabbers, and a snack after the clean up. Please bring your own re-fillable water bottle.
