Coastal Cleanup Day

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join us for Coastal Cleanup Day!

You can make a difference! Adopt Cabrillo Beach and Coastal Park by joining our beach cleanup. Spend a morning with CMA staff and other volunteers and help improve our environment.

Participants will meet on outer Cabrillo Beach at 9 am. Aquarium staff will provide bags and instructions. In the spirit of keeping the event close to "zero waste," we ask volunteers to bring their own reusable buckets, bags, pillowcases - all of which are great *reusable* makeshift trash collection receptacles! -gloves and water bottle if possible.

Keep track of the trash you pick up and add your data to a global database to help scientists follow trends in marine and coastal debris! Download and use the Clean Swell app from the Ocean Conservancy: Click here. Then log in to Group Name "CMA Beach Cleanup".

We are hosting this event in collaboration with the California Coastal Commission. Every U.S. state and more than 100 countries participate in the cleanup.

Free and open to all ages; reservations required for groups of 15 or more.
