California Coastal Cleanup Day

Join millions of Americans on Coastal Cleanup Day to remove litter in our waterways. Litter found around the County Parks and streets eventually ends up in our local creeks and rivers which flows out to the San Francisco Bay. You can make a difference not only in your community but for the whole Bay Area.

No special skills are required for this event, but we ask you bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and a mask (for when social distancing is not possible), and wear close-toed shoes.

Work gloves and pick up sticks are provided but you are welcome to bring your own.

Vaccination verification will not be required for volunteer events that are outside and one-time or short-term in nature. If you wish to apply as a Long Term volunteer (18 and older), or volunteer working indoors, you will be required to show proof of vaccination and all boosters for which you are eligible. Regardless of your vaccination status, do not attend a volunteer event if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to COVID-19. Click here for Santa Clara County's COVID-19 Guidelines. Please contact the volunteer office with questions: [email protected]

*Volunteers under 12 may attend while under direct supervision of their parent/guardian and distanced from other participants.
