Post 4th of July

firework trashWe all enjoy celebrating the 4th of July, and there’s nothing more patriotic than saving our fish, sharks, turtles, whales and snowy plovers by picking up this eventful day’s litter. Let’s all do our part to make this ‘land of the free… free of debris’!

Every July, the Pacifica Beach Coalition organizes a team of Earth Heroes who take action by cleaning up our streets and beaches after the celebratory traditions of the 4th of July. Fireworks litter and debris on the streets and from our yards can blow in the wind into San Pedro Creek, Milagra Creek, the Secret Waterfall or our ocean. When its on the beach, it washes out to sea with the tides and becomes harmful marine debris.

The Post 4th of July cleanup dates and locations for 2017 will are now being announced:

Wed. July 5th 7:30AM to 9:30AM Linda Mar State Beach In the main parking lot
Wed. July 5th 7:30AM to 9:30AM Rockaway Beach In the south lot
