The Log • September 12 - 25, 2014 • 11 Coastal Cleanup events scheduled for Sept. 20


Volunteers can lend a hand at various sites located up and down the SoCal coast.


By Ambrosia Brody Boaters and beachgoers have an


opportunity to play a role in helping to rid local coastal waters of trash and debris during this year’s California Coastal Cleanup Day, Sept. 20. Volunteers in Southern California will find many cleanups in which they can get involved. Held annually, the cleanups allow the public to help rid beaches, harbors, creeks and waterways of trash after long summer days. Launched in 1985, Coastal Cleanup Day has grown into an international event held in more than 90 countries around the world. In San Diego County, volunteers can


help from 9 a.m. to noon. at various sites. For more information or a com- plete list of cleanup sites, visit cleanup- day.org. Oceanside’s Buccaneer Beach, Del


Mar’s San Diegito Lagoon, La Jolla Shores and Mission Bay’s Fiesta Island are a few of the places where volunteers can lend a hand. At Sun Harbor Marina, boaters can help clean up the marine by volunteer- ing and hour or two of their time. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own bucket and work gloves. For more information, visit sun-harbor.com. Power Scuba will also be hosting a


large underwater cleanup in six spots from the Maritime Museum of San Diego to Tuna Harbor. More than 100 divers are expected to participate in the daylong event that will end with a bar- becue. For more information, visit meetup.com/Scuba-Diving-San-Diego. Visit OCparks.com for a list of cleanup locations in Orange County. Volunteers can lend a hand at Big and Little Corona, Bolsa Chica State Beach, and Aliso Creek. Visit OCparks.com for more information on cleanup sites. Dana Point Harbor is hosting two cleanup events, including a Cigarette Butt Roundup and an Underwater Cleanup. For more information on these events, visit ocdph.com/about/events or dphunderwatercleanup.com. For a list of cleanup sites in Los


Angeles County, visit healthebay.org. Some sites include Dey Yacht Club, Malibu Lagoon, Santa Monica Beach and King Harbor Yacht Club. Volunteers can lend a hand at


Cabrillo State Beach (3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro). For informa- tion, visit cabrillomarineaquarium.org. El Dorado Nature Center and the city


of Long Beach will host an event from 9 a.m. to noon at Alamitos Bay Marina, Alamitos Beach, Belmont Pier, Bluff Park, and Mother’s Beach. Volunteers simply need to show up on the day of the event and sign in at any of our sites. Bags and gloves will be available at each site and parking is free for the duration of the event.

Brooke Davis at (562) 570-4876. Kayakers can help out during The Bay


Foundation’s 10th annual Kayak and SUP Coastal Cleanup Day in Marina del Rey. As the only kayak cleanup site, the event is hugely popular each year and books up early.


Early signups will have a chance to


secure use of a kayak or a stand-up pad- dleboard from The Bay Foundation; however, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own kayaks or SUPs to use on the day of the cleanup. The Bay Foundation will provide small nets for volunteers to pick up trash from the


ocean.


Last year’s event drew 114 volunteers to the event and resulted in the removal of 30 pounds of trash, according to the foundation. “The goal of our kayak-and-SUP cleanup is to ultimately change people’s behavior and habits so that they will recycle more, use less plastic (think zero waste lunches, less or no packaging), and help protect the benefits and values of Santa Monica Bay and our coastal ocean,” said Grace Lee, The Bay Foundation’s director of Outreach Programs. “To see people react every year


to the amount and types of trash they collect from the water is inspiring, because it means the act of cleaning up is making that impact that changes peo- ple.”


The event takes place from 8:15 a.m.


to 1:30 p.m. For questions on signing up with your own kayak, or being added to the wait list, visit santamonicabay.org or contact Carrie Baldwin at cbaldwin@santamonicabay.org. Santa Barbara County will host a


variety of cleanup sites. For a complete list, visit lessismore.org/pages/coastal- cleanup-day-in-santa-barbara-county.
