Help Our Students Get Back Outside!


School is back in session and after a year and a half of virtual learning, Coastkeeper is back to taking students out in the field – and we need your help!

We are aiming to raise $3,000 in donations to bring our education program, WHALES (Watershed Heroes: Actions Linking Education to Stewardship), to more than 3,000 students during the 2021-2022 school year. This program fosters students’ connections with the natural world and empowers them with the notion that their local environment is theirs to explore, enjoy, and protect.

Join Us for Coastal Cleanup Day


Every year, Coastal Cleanup Day brings the community together to remove trash and plastic pollution at beaches and waterways throughout the state. This year we’ll be hosting both a month-long virtual event and in-person events throughout Orange County on September 18th from 9 a.m. to noon.

Visit our Coastal Cleanup page to register for one of this year’s cleanup sites.
