Coastal Cleanup Day 2021

As the world returns to a new normal after a challenging year, so is Coastal Cleanup Day 2021!  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.
