As we begin the initials steps for the event, we wanted to share some accomplishments and totals from last year's Coastal Cleanup Day! In 2016, we had over 7,500 dedicated San Diegans across the County explored and beautified beaches, canyons, creeks, and parks and worked to remove over 150,000 lbs of debris! San Diego County's Coastal Cleanup Day is part of a statewide and international cleanup effort to enhance and conserve our coast across the world.
Check out www.CoastalCleanupDay.org to see the data entered in from coordinators across the globe and for international totals!
For instructions on how to create your own repurposed sand sifter to bring to the cleanup, as well as other reusable cleanup craft ideas, visit the kids page. Check out the winners of the Bling Your Bucket contest - thanks to all who participated and to those who brought their own reusable cleanup supplies last year!
