Save Our Shores Star Spangled Holiday Relief, July 4th Holiday Relief Beach Cleanups

Pollution prevention is patriotic 🇺🇸.

Every year, thousands of beachgoers visit Monterey Bay beaches to celebrate the birth of our nation. Unfortunately, the celebration often results in tons of trash littering our shores. That’s where Save Our Shores Holiday Relief Program comes in. To prevent waste from entering the ocean and harming wildlife, Save Our Shores is hosting a mass beach cleanup effort at Hotspot beaches across the Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties on the morning after July 4th!

Last year, 220 volunteers removed 2,489lbs of trash from 11 beaches.
