Biggest Trash Cleanup in Our History

On Saturday, June 18, a group of 78 volunteers joined OC Coastkeeper, Senator Dave Min, and Assemblymember Cottie Petrie-Norris for a trash cleanup at the Santa Ana-Delhi channel in Costa Mesa. In just two hours, the volunteers removed over 2,500 pounds of debris, preventing it from entering Upper Newport Bay. This astounding number is the most trash picked up at a single cleanup in OC Coastkeeper’s 23-year history!

Join us this fall as we “Toast the Coast” to celebrate 50 years of the Clean Water Act! After a two-year hiatus, our annual fundraiser has returned to the Balboa Pavilion this October. This fun-filled event will feature a silent auction, robust live entertainment, and a delectable dinner. We are currently looking for sponsors to help us make this the most successful fundraiser in Coastkeeper history! Visit this webpage for more information.
