MALIBU—For many Californians, the beaches hold a special place in the heart. They are where locals learned how to swim, how to surf, and enjoyed time with families, and spent summer with friends. This Saturday is an opportunity to give back to the beaches at the 28th annual Coastal Cleanup Day.
The event will start at 9 a.m. and end at noon. Volunteers will meet at Surfrider Beach, north of Malibu Pier.
Thousands of volunteers will join the City of Malibu, Malibu Surging Association, and Heal the Bay to help clean up our beaches. Last year, 676,768 pounds of trash and 115,773 pounds of recyclable waste were accumulated by the 70,000 Californians that helped.
By putting on some gloves and picking up garbage, volunteers can all help the California economy, marine life, and improve local health.
Volunteers will be given free parking in Los Angeles County parking lots, and students can earn up to three hours of community service.
