Part of the 400 pounds of trash collected at San Gregorio State Beach at last year's Coastal Cleanup Day.
This year's event at San Gregorio State Beach will be Saturday, September 15th, 2012 from 9am-noon. Parking has always been free for cleanup volunteers. Bring sturdy shoes or boots, layered clothing, sunscreen, and the whole family! We encourage reusable water bottles, heavy gloves and plastic buckets for cleanup, but we'll have plenty of supplies on hand.
There are many other cleanup locations along the coast and inland. Visit Coastal Cleanup Day to find more information about the event and how to find cleanup sites.
San Gregorio Environmental Resource Center (SGERC) is proud to have been site captains for Coastal Cleanup Day at the State Beach since 2003. SGERC has also assisted in cleanup efforts at Pomponio and Tunitas Creeks. The organization also has adopted a stretch of highway along Hwy 84, keeping that area cleared of trash since 2007. To find out more about SGERC, call their office at (650) 726-2499, or visit their website sgerc.org.
