Annual Coastal Cleanup

Join Save Our Shores on September 19th for the would's largest beach clean up effort.

The Annual Coastal Cleanup is the world’s largest volunteer effort for the ocean. Every year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches across the globe. Here on California’s Central Coast, Save Our Shores is responsible for leading nearly 80 beach cleanup events. The success of our local cleanups are determined by you!  The more hands we have helping, the more pollution we can prevent from entering our beautiful ocean and endangering marine wildlife. Last year, our community of volunteers managed to remove 24,379 pounds of debris. That’s equivalent to 37 adult male sea lions!

Join Our Community On September 19th
