Clean our Bay shoreline on September 17! 
Join thousands statewide for California Coastal Cleanup Day 
This year's  California Coastal Cleanup is Saturday, September 17, with several sites in West County.

This event is part of the world's largest volunteer effort to clean our oceans, shores and waterways. It's a great opportunity to join friends improving the health and beauty of our San Francisco Bay shoreline, while having fun.
