Adopt Windansea Beach

6705 Neptune Pl

The Pacific Photographic Society has adopted Windansea beach, part of I Love a Clean San Diego's new program. There will be additional opportunities in the future for other clean ups of Windansea. This is an ongoing project to keep Windansea clean. As a side benefit, events will be scheduled that will provide photo ops, early morning and later in the day. Windansea can hold its own against any beach on the Cal coast (IMHO) and it has a rich history of surfing going back to the 1960's. Thank you for your participation.
You must sign a volunteer liability waiver. Please dress in layers and closed toe shoes. Please bring a bucket or bag to hold trash and gloves to protect your hands from sharp objects. Bring hat and sunscreen, H2O/snack.
