Online registration now open, sign up today
for the World’s biggest beach cleanup!

And if you are a large group, please sign your group up HERE.


Each year in September, our Earth Heroes of all ages take action during California Coastal Cleanup Day.  Since 2005, over 36,000 pounds of debris have been removed from the San Mateo County coastline by more than 9,500 volunteers.

The Pacifica Beach Coalition has been hosting this annual statewide cleanup since 1998 –  held on the same day as The Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup Day, one of the largest volunteer events around the world.  We coordinate these cleanups at the local level along the San Mateo County coast as part of our field education programs in partnership with the California Coastal Commission and San Mateo Countywide Pollution Prevention Program.

Save the Date … Mark your calendars now and sign up for this year’s Coastal Cleanup Day!
