This Saturday is the 26th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day, 9 a.m. to noon. Get ready to hit our local beaches and waterways and pick up some trash!

This year Baykeeper and Surfrider Humboldt are joining forces with the Northcoast Environmental Center to organize individuals and teams to clean up our coastlines.

Last year 920 people turned out to clean more than 64 miles of Humboldt County beaches and waterways, picking up more than 5,800 pounds of trash and recyclables. This year we hope to sign up at least 1,000 volunteers.

To join a team contact Lisa at the NEC (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or clean-up your favorite beach, river spot or any waterway that is special to you.
