Coastal Cleanup Day 2020
Saturday, September 26, 2020
The 36th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day is set for Saturday, September 26, 2020 in San Diego County, starting with a virtual kickoff on Facebook Live @ILoveACleanSD. Register to join the county’s Official Coastal Cleanup Day coordinators, I Love A Clean San Diego, and be a part of the global cleanup effort by removing polluting litter and debris close to home in your community throughout the day on September 26th. Volunteers of all ages are invited to grab buckets and work gloves (or whatever you can round up and re-purpose from around the house) and walk your block or hit a nearby Litter Hotspot with your household.
Registration opens Tuesday, September 1 at CleanupDay.org. Volunteers will receive important safety and virtual event resources and information to have a successful cleanup.
Become a citizen scientist!
An important part of this event is collecting data on the types of litter that volunteers clean up; we look to you to be citizen scientists and report back on your litter findings! This data helps give us a snapshot of what is impacting our region year to year. A link to a form will be sent to all registrants to help us gather that data. Your cleanup and findings will be shared on our Volunteer Impact Map to track cleanup totals, all day long, countywide!
Whether you’re coastal or inland, it all makes a huge impact on the health of our waterways and oceans – cleaning the coast starts at your front door.
