Coastal Cleanup DayJoin Amoeba and the Santa Monica Baykeeper for Coastal Clean-Up Day at Dockweiler Beach on Saturday, September 17 from 9:00am to noon.

Coastal Cleanup Day is the largest volunteer day on the planet! Thousands of volunteers around the world will come together to help pick up trash along our coasts.

California's coast and waterways have historically been collecting spots for annual accumulations of trash and debris. This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to all manners of marine wildlife, can damage the state's economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent them, and to have fun!

To sign-up to volunteer in the clean-up, visit http://ccd2011.eventbrite.com, email jbadger@smbaykeeper.org, or call 310.305.9645, ext. 105.
