Adopt-a-Beach with Heal the Bay

Santa Monica's Ocean Park beach- Station 26:

Volunteers join us 4 times a year to clean up trash; mostly microplastics, plastic lids, straws, and cigarette butts. We report it on the Marine Debris Tracker app for Heal the Bay where they take that information and use it to create legislation to protect our ocean. If you would like to join our next beach clean up, sign up , we'd love to have you.


Neighborhood Beautification

Volunteers have the opportunity to join us in our monthly neighborhood cleanup in the Ocean Park community of Santa Monica. We typically collect buckets, bags, and sometimes even a box full of trash! If you would like to participate in any upcoming cleanups, contact us.

Coastal Cleanup Day

Saturday, September 18th, 10am. Santa Monica Beach - Station 28, we set up a site sponsored by Heal the Bay to cleanup the beaches of littered, washed up, and pushed out of the storm drains trash on our beaches. We collected over 9lbs of trash in just a couple of hours. Thanks to the volunteers who came out and helped!

Looking forward to 2022. Check back for event date and sign ups.


Teen Group Neighborhood Beautification Program

Teens participate in cleaning up trash in the neighborhood, tracking the data, as well as learn about plastic waste and why trash is toxic to our environment. These are great advocacy, group building, and service opportunities for our local teens, our future leaders.

Picking Up Litter

Compassion for Animals 

Another awesome opportunity with teens, they learn about shelter animals and how to advocate for them. Social media is a plus with this activity, we encourage it and use it for networking adoptable animals.
