“From forest fires to litter, clean water is so important to us in maintaining LA, protecting the places and people we love, and fighting the increasingly serious effects of climate change,” said a statement from Heal the Bay.
In 2020, Heal the Bay volunteers removed more than 40,000 pieces of trash from neighborhoods, parks, trails, and beaches.
Volunteers can register at healthebay.org/coastalcleanupmonth.
All participants are asked to wear a mask, gloves, and stay home if they are not in good health. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the available spaces at each cleaning point are limited.
