Long Beach, CA - The Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) is inviting the community to make a positive impact on our local environment for California Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 18, 2021. This year’s theme, “Protect Your Happy Place,” encourages everyone to become stewards of our beaches and oceans.

“California Coastal Cleanup Day is an opportunity for residents and organizations to show support for Long Beach’s natural resources,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We invite the community to come out and help us keep our iconic waterways and coastlines clean.”

The El Dorado Nature Center is coordinating Long Beach’s cleanup efforts in cooperation with Alamitos Beach Cleanup, Aquarium of the Pacific, Surfrider Foundation and Seal Beach Yacht Club.

Volunteers are invited to join in anytime from 9 a.m. to noon at any of the following four locations:
  • Alamitos Bay Marina, 255 N. Marina Drive
  • Alamitos Beach, Beach Access Road off Shoreline Drive
  • Belmont Pier, 39th Place, south of Ocean Boulevard
  • The Peninsula, Ocean Boulevard at 72nd Place
Gloves and trash bags will be provided; however, participants are encouraged to bring their own reusable buckets and reusable gloves to limit waste. For more details, visit Long Beach’s Coastal Cleanup Day web page or call the El Dorado Nature Center at 562.570.1745.
