Thank you to everyone who participated in the 31st Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day, held on September 19th, 2015! More than 68,000 people removed 1,142,997 pounds of trash and recyclable materials from California’s coast and inland water.

The mission of Ventura Countywide Coalition for Coastal and Inland Waterways is, “Promoting clean & healthy beaches, rivers and creeks throughout Ventura County”.

Be one of 60,000 people to take part in the upcoming 32nd Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day! Volunteers will remove debris from the coast, creeks, rivers, lakes and shorelines all around California protecting wildlife from harm while taking care of our environment. Check out the short video below!

To volunteer, follow the steps below. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • Pick a site you would like to clean up! There are approximately 20 sites in Ventura County alone, eager for your services. See the “Cleanup Sites” tab above for a list.
  • Print out the county specific waiver from this website and sign it. Remember, if you are under 18, have a parent or guardian sign for you! Waivers will also be available at cleanup sites on the day of the Cleanup.
  • Show up at your chosen site on Saturday, September 17th, 2016 by 9 am!

Reminder: If you are a student needing volunteer service hours, Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way to get your hours and help the environment at the same time!
