In Person Cleanups Are Back!
Be part of California’s largest volunteer event on Saturday, September 18th at any one of the 50 organized cleanup sites in Marin! Come (back) together to celebrate and share in the appreciation of our fabulous coast, bays, and waterways. Click any one of the sites on the map below to sign up!
-Or- Protect Your Happy Place!
Want to get involved but for health and safety reasons you’re still not feeling the organized cleanup event vibe? Then take the opportunity all month long to Protect Your Happy Place!
Grab your family or housemates and clean up your street, park, local creek or shoreline, or anywhere else that makes up your happy place! Whether we gather in organized groups, or cleanup our own neighborhoods, let’s make this year a big Coastal Cleanup success!
You can clean up any day, any time. You can report your cleanup(s) by recording data on the CleanSwell mobile app. If you can’t use the app, download and print a data card in English or Spanish, then mail your completed card to the address on the card. If you find something weird, interesting, or funny during your cleanup, take a picture and enter the Most Unusual Item Contest for a chance to win a prize package. All cleanups in September will be included as part of Coastal Cleanup Month.
Things to Remember…
- Prepare for the day with a reusable bucket, work gloves, litter grabbers, reusable water bottle and sturdy shoes.
- Wear face masks and gloves.
- Practice social distancing and try not to form large groups.
- Remember many small efforts make a big difference.
- Record the litter you collect and share it on the Clean Swell app.
Have Fun, Be Safe, and Thanks for Participating!
