California’s coast and waterways have historically been collecting spots for annual accumulations of trash and debris. This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to all manners of marine wildlife, can damage our state’s economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Coastal Cleanup Day is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent them, and to have fun!

SEPT. 30, OCT. 1 & 2, FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, PACIFIC PADDLE GAMES:  Volunteers are needed all three days in the Beer Garden to check ID’s, sell tickets for drinks and, of course, pour beer and margaritas.  Garden will be open from noon to 6 PM.  Shifts are tentatively set for 11:45 AM to 3 PM and from 2:45 to 6 PM.  Please contact Ed Neely at edneely@dohneystatebeach.org.
