Save Our Shores Hosts Coastal Community Clean Up in Santa Cruz, California

Save Our Shores, an environmental agency located in Santa Cruz, California, is hosting 4 area beach and river clean ups on April 21st, 2012, in honor of Earth Day.  Save Our Shores is continually hosting community clean up projects all year, but this Earth Day clean up event will be their largest clean up effort to date.

There will be four separate clean up locations:

  • San Lorenzo River Cleanup at Water Street Bridge in Santa Cruz: 10am-1pm
  • Beach Cleanup at Cowell/Main Beach in Santa Cruz: 10am-Noon
  • Beach Cleanup at Manresa State Beach from 10am-Noon
  • Beach Cleanup at Del Monte Beach at Wharf #2 in Monterey, 10am-Noon
Volunteers are still needed to make this the most successful event yet.   In 2011, over 2,400 pounds of garbage were removed from just two Earth Day clean up sites with the help of nearly 200 community volunteers.  Included in the 2,400 pounds of garbage were over 3,500 cigarette butts were found in one day. Volunteers also prevented 400 plastic bags from entering Monterey Bay water systems.
If you would like to participate in one of the Save Our Shores Cleanup efforts, make sure you bring your own trash bucket with handle, gloves, water bottle and lunch in a reusable shopping bag to help reduce volunteer foot prints.
After a day of clean up, the Santa Cruz Earth Day Festival 2012 begins, with booths featuring environmentally friendly products, educational information, activities for kids, and a free reusable grocery bag give away while supplies last.   The festival will be held in Lorenzo Park, from 11:00 am to  5:00 pm.
Then, beginning at 8:00 pm, the Earth Groove dance party kicks off to benefit Save Our Shores! Performing artists include the Serendipity Project, Funkranomicon, and Take One. Earth Groove will be at Don Quixotes.
Volunteers are still needed for Santa Cruz’s community clean ups, so if you would like to do something positive for the earth, join in the fun with Save Our Shores!
