Coastal Cleanup Day

  • Dan Blocker Beach (map)

Coastal Cleanup Day is an international day of action to protect our oceans, watersheds, and wildlife from trash and debris. AVDD has joined the team with Heal the Bay, that coordinates LA County cleanup locations in association with Ocean Conservancy and California Coastal Commission.

September 21st marks the 30th Anniversary of Coastal Cleanup Day. Did you know that 80% of marine environment pollution come from the land? The run-off from LA counties nearly 200,00 storm drains flows directly to the ocean causing the majority of local ocean pollution. Are you interested in being part of the celebration?

This will be AVDD's 6th year participating in this worldwide event and our third year hosting a cleanup site. Last year Dan Blocker/Corral Beaches had 120+ volunteers come out along with another 13,344+ volunteers across LA County at 77 other sites to pick up nearly 30 tons of trash that was bound for our oceans in just three hours. If you would like to help with site setup and operation, please email us at avdesertdive@gmail.com, or message us on Facebook or Instagram. There is lots to do and all help is appreciated.
