On the third Saturday in September California cleans up! 

The Ocean Institute is proud to be an offical site for the California Coastal Commission clean up. The California Coastal Cleanup Day welcomes more than 60,000 volunteers who will pick up hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash and recyclables from beaches, lakes, and waterways each year.
