In Person Cleanups are Back!

Be part of California’s largest volunteer event! Come (back) together to celebrate and share in the appreciation of California’s fabulous coast and waterways.

37th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day
Saturday, September 18, 2021
9 a.m. - Noon

Every year, on the third Saturday of September, volunteers all over the world converge on beaches, shorelines and inland waterways to pick up trash and remove dangerous debris.  Considered the largest marine-related volunteer event in the world, Coastal Cleanup Day is a wonderful opportunity to lend a hand and make a significant difference.

In 2019, over 50 cleanup sites in Marin County were in need of volunteer assistance.  It’s easy to participate – just check out this interactive map to find a cleanup site near you.  Help us reduce waste on Coastal Cleanup Day by bringing a bucket or reusable bag and reusable gloves with you for the Cleanup.  If you don’t have them or forget, don’t worry! The Site Captains at your cleanup will have supplies on hand.

Please print out the Waiver form in English or Spanish and bring it with you to the cleanup site of your choice.

Unfortunately, the free BBQ at the Bay Model Visitor Center in Sausalito immediately following the event has been cancelled.
