California Coastal Cleanup Day

California Coastal Cleanup Day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 18 from 9 a.m. to noon, and the City of Carpinteria encourages you to pitch in that day or any day to help prevent ocean pollution. Organized cleanups will take place at Jelly Bowl, Carpinteria State Beach, Rincon County Park and Santa Claus Lane. Alternatively, you can participate by picking up litter in your neighborhood, park or other local area. Trash from inland areas flows downstream to the coast, so cleaning up neighborhood trash prevents marine debris. Gather cleanup supplies from home, download the CleanSwell app to count your trash, and to have your trash counted!
