The Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter and San Diego Coastkeeper coordinate public beach cleanups several times each month. We host a cleanup at the Oceanside Pier on the first Saturday of each month, a North County beach cleanup on the second Saturday (Oceanside to Torrey Pines), a cleanup at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on the third Saturday and on the fourth Saturday we clean up a beach in South County (La Jolla to Imperial Beach). There are no beach cleanups scheduled for December.
Help us Rise Above Plastics by bringing your own reusable supplies and reducing your plastic footprint! Reusable bags, buckets, gloves and grabbers will be available for those who do not have their own supplies. Please wear comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Also, don’t forget your reusable cup or bottle. Water will be provided, but cups are limited.
If you have a group of over 25 people, please print this waiver and have your volunteers sign it in advance of the cleanup to help expedite the registration process. Download a copy of our waiver form here!
