The Pacifica Beach Coalition and its entire team of dedicated volunteers are proud to support a new beach cleanup at Pillar Point and hope you will join the efforts to make a difference at this location.

From the sea walls covered with plastic bags to the shoreline full of styrofoam and the to-go lunches forgotten on the beach, a cleanup is desperately needed and your help is more than ever desired.

Please join us at Pillar Point Harbor’s Beach every last Saturday of the month, from 9 to 11am:

  • Saturday, July 26
  • Saturday, June 28
  • Saturday, May 31

Park at the south east end of the Pillar Point harbor parking lots, walk across to the coastal path and meet us near the RV park, where you will find a check in table and supplies.

To help us reduce waste, please bring your own buckets and gloves if you have them. We will have plenty of supplies should you need them.

Thank you and we hope to see you there as we work to build a connected group of volunteers who make a difference at Pillar Point!

For more information please check the websites for the Pacifica Beach Coalition and Half Moon Bay Beach Cleanup.
