Everywhere in San Diego is a part of our local watershed.
That means, every cleanup is a beach cleanup.

Is the beach not easily accessible for you? Not a problem.
Cleanup where you are!
Trash pollution from all parts of the county gets to the ocean through our naturally occurring waterways and constructed storm drains. 
Cleanup anywhere in your neighborhood, at your local park, or anywhere else, and contribute to a healthier ocean.
