Coastal Cleanup Day

Sept. 21, 2024

9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Explore Ecology
Santa Barbara County

Isn’t it time to show your favorite beach or creek some love? The largest volunteer effort in California, Coastal Cleanup Day is our day to give back to the ocean, beaches, and creeks that make Santa Barbara County such a wonderful place to be. Get outside, enjoy nature, and be part of the solution to ocean pollution!

Volunteers of all ages can participate at any of the 2024 cleanup sites. Pre-registration is not required, but is encouraged.

Each site will have a captain on hand to provide necessary instructions and supplies. You can bring your own gloves, buckets, and other reusable cleanup supplies to lessen the plastic footprint of this event. If you don’t have any supplies, there will be plenty at each site. If you can’t make the cleanup on the 21st, we encourage you to clean up any time during the month of September and your cleanup data will be included as part of the Coastal Cleanup Day results!

Coastal Cleanup Day is brought to you by Explore Ecology and our partner the County of Santa Barbara Resource Recovery and Waste Management, with support from the Cities of Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Solvang. The California Coastal Commission organizes the statewide event and the international event is organized by the Ocean Conservancy.
