Volunteer for 30 Minute Beach Clean Up

 

Calling all friends who love nature, our oceans and aquatic wildlife- here's our chance to help out. Help keep our ocean clean and save some sea creatures from choking on our trash.

I will email my cell number to friends who are attending.

Beachfront parking at 1 Granada Ave. is free (starting at 9:35 a.m.) for beach cleanup volunteers (and refreshments and door prizes are provided for them).

Parking-The 1/2 –hour beach cleanup takes place at 1 Granada Ave. on the third Sat. of every month and approx. 200 volunteers of all ages show up to help. Post-cleanup refreshments are provided by Duthie Power Systems. Energy drinks by Spider Energy!

The 30-Minute Beach Cleanup seeks to create a clean and safe place for residents, visitors and aquatic wildlife along the Long Beach coast. During the effort, volunteers progress toward the Belmont Pier and the Peninsula. Volunteers are asked to wear shoes and sunscreen.

Parking is free for those who enter the beachfront parking lot at 1 Granada Ave. @ Ocean Blvd. from 9:35 - 10 a.m. Cars must exit the lot by 1 p.m. Gloves, bags, refreshments and door prizes will be provided. And/or bring your own recycled grocery sack.

WIN DOOR PRIZES

Be sure to be signed-in by 10 a.m. sharp to get a raffle ticket to win some great door prizes each month. The drawings are held approx. 10:35, after the 1/2-hour cleaning.

    Hi Everyone,

    I have just email out my cell #. If anyone is up for it, we can also lunch at the Veggie Grill afterward. It is only 2 miles from the beach clean up site. There is a Trader Joe right next to it, and across the street, there is a Whole Food Market- if you want to do some grocery shopping on your own after lunch.

      Hi Haydn, that is fine. Sorry for the late reply as I have not log in for awhile. Just glad that you are interested in helping out. If not this month, then perhaps some other month.
