Formerly known as Coastal Cleanup Day and Creek Day - this year ECOSLO has joined forces with the Central Coast Partners for Water Quality to bring you an even bigger and better event - SLO County Creeks to Coast Cleanup! This year, join us as we track data and clean up not only our beautiful coastline, but several inland creeks, lakes, and parks throughout SLO County.
Since 2005, ECOSLO coordinates beach cleanups from San Simeon to Nipomo as part of an international day of cleanup. Even though Central Coast beaches are cleaner than some, last year we removed nearly 6,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, waterways, and lakes.
For the past 10 years, Central Coast Partners for Water Quality have been hosting Creek Day in late September. They've been tackling the creeks and inland sites - working to picked up heavy loads of trash here to work to prevent that debris from eventually finding its way to the ocean.
As County Coordinator, ECOSLO works with the California Coastal Commission to bring out our community in the campaign for healthy coasts, shorelines, and oceans. Last year, 1,312 volunteers removed 5,688 pounds of trash and recyclables from 36 cleanup locations throughout SLO CAL, in just three hours!
This year, all of SLO CAL will band together to clean our beautiful watersheds and coastline - from the creeks to the coast!
