Coastal Cleanup Day 9/15: Volunteers Needed
LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (September 7, 2018) – Coastal Cleanup Day is coming to Clear Lake on Saturday September Sept 15th! This is the perfect opportunity for Lake County citizen volunteers to help clean shorelines and prevent trash from entering the lake and degrading the aquatic environment.
Coastal Cleanup day involves more than marine beaches, as shorelines exist along any lake or waterbody, such as Clear Lake. Started in 1985 by the California Coastal Commission, Coastal Cleanup day is one of the largest volunteer events in the US involving more than 60,000 volunteers each year. Since its inception, Coastal Cleanup day has resulted in the removal of 23 million pounds of trash from public beaches, lakes, and waterways.
Volunteers are encouraged to participate at any of the five shoreline locations within the County. Materials such as gloves and trash bags will be provided. Kayakers and boaters are also strongly encouraged to participate as trash can be found on land and in the water! Want to go green? Bring your own bucket or reusable bags to help collect trash and save the landfill from more plastic!
If you or someone you know would like to participate in Coastal Cleanup Day, report to any of the following locations on Sat September 15th from 9AM to Noon:
1) Keeling County Park (3000 Carson St, Upper Lake, CA 95485)
