Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is an international event with over 60 countries around the world participating. It is coordinated in San Mateo County by SMCWPPP in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission, Ocean Conservancy, and many local partners.

CCD is a volunteer event focused on cleaning up the marine environment.  As the single largest one-day cleanup event in the world, International Coastal Cleanup Day has seen some impressive results in terms of the number of volunteers and the amount of debris cleaned up.  At last year’s Cleanup, over 4,000 volunteers collected more than 40,000 pounds of trash from all over San Mateo County. This clean up not only helped remove debris from our waterways and streets but also created community awareness. Please come and help clean Montara Beach or another site local to you.

Here’s a complete list of all local clean up sites:

Coastal Clen-up Day is probably one of the best efforts in conservation. It’s amazing how many people join the effort and really make beaches shine. That’s really what it will take to preserve our resources: this concerted effort by willing hands. Looking forward to it. That’s one of the areas the Cal Boating Safety Team works to target: safe, smart use of natural aquatic resources. Check them out on Facebook when you have a chance: http://bit.ly/boatFB
