Save the date on Sept. 21 for Los Angeles County’s Coastal Cleanup Day event.
Volunteers are not only able to take part in cleaning up over 50 beach and inland locations in the county but they can also raise funds for event host Heal the Bay. Those who raise over $100 will receive a Heal the Bay T-shirt.
Last year 63,000 volunteers removed over 871,580 pounds of trash and recyclable waste spanning over 1,500 miles, a press release stated.
Cyclists will be able to uniquely contribute to the volunteer efforts by hauling out junk in the upper end of Malibu Creek that is too difficult to reach on foot. The cycling event is open to those age 16 and up or anyone younger with a waiver form signed by a parent or guardian.
