Cowell/Main Beach Pollution Prevention Outreach – Memorial Day

Infographic showing 8 quick tips to help combat the 8 million mertric tons of plastic that enter our ocean each yearJoin Save Our Shores, and our event partner the City of Santa Cruz, for an educational outreach event at Cowell Beach and Main Beach! On big holidays, our local beaches always need a little extra TLC. Help us prevent plastics pollution and other debris from entering the marine environment by educating beachgoers and handing out pack-your-trash bags in this special Memorial Day event.

Please meet us at the base of the stairs to Cowell Beach.

We recommend that all volunteers dress in layers, wear sun protection, and bring a filled reusable water bottle. Save Our Shores encourages volunteers to avoid single-use plastics at our cleanups. Learn more about our current campaigns to reduce plastic pollution.

Volunteers under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult. Closed-toed shoes are required at all Save Our Shores cleanups.

There are restrooms and drinking fountains on site. Parking will be limited, so please plan accordingly.

No RSVPs are necessary, but you can print and sign our waiver beforehand to save time: saveourshores.org/waiver. [Be sure to bring your signed copy (1 per volunteer) to the event.]

If you have additional questions, please contact us at nia@saveourshores.org.
