California Coastal Cleanup Day
San Diego County

2019 Results!

In just three hours today, more than 6,500 volunteers cleared nearly 145,000 pounds (72.5 tons) of waste and debris from streets, canyons, parks and the coastline in communities across San Diego County for the 35th annual Coastal Cleanup Day, organized by the nonprofit I Love A Clean San Diego. The day’s environmental protection effort took place at 107 sites around the region and prevented the equivalent of 5,500 garbage trucks emptying their contents into the ocean.

Captain: Lindsey Smith , Engel & Völkers Carlsbad


Tamarack Avenue and Carlsbad Blvd., Carlsbad, CA 92008

From I-5: Exit Tamarack Avenue and head west towards the beach.

State Parks CANNOT provide free parking at this site, and volunteers must pay for parking or park in nearby legally designated parking spots. We’ll be meeting at the end of the Tamarack State Beach parking lot, located at the intersection of Carlsbad Boulevard and Tamarack Avenue. Look for the white pop up tents and the Engel & Völkers flags. We will provide light snacks, and we’ll be hosting a free drawing with multiple prizes. Entries can be earned for arriving on time, bringing a completed waiver, providing your own reusable supplies, and more. There will be a diving group participating from this location, and some groups will be heading along the lagoon trail and roadside sidewalk to collect inland debris. Reflective safety vests are available. Some of these paths are wheelchair and stroller friendly. All ages and abilities are welcome. Bathrooms, drinking fountains, and showers are conveniently located nearby. Please note this is a paid parking lot. It is $10 to park in this lot for the duration of the event. Free parking is available along Carlsbad Boulevard just north and south of the site, as well as in the adjacent neighborhoods. Hablamos Español. A gente fala Portuguese. Nous parlons Français.
