Surfrider hosts a monthly beach cleanup, typically on the 4th Saturday of each month. Most of the items collected at beach cleanups are plastic and don’t truly biodegrade. It is important to host cleanups because litter is ugly and we want to help protect the coastal wildlife that we love!

For all beach cleanups, please wear comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes and sunscreen. All volunteers are welcome to participate and must sign a liability waiver. Pre-­registration is not required unless your group is larger than 25 people – please email Ryan with how many people you expect: beachcleanups@ventura.surfrider.org

Volunteers under 18 MUST have a parent or guardian present at the beginning of the cleanup to sign a liability waiver before the minor can participate. You can download the waiver here: Beach.Cleanup.Waiver. We will provide all supplies, but volunteers are always welcome to bring their own work gloves, trash bag/bucket, and/or reusable water bottle to reduce waste.

Please be prepared to fill out a data card of all the trash you pick up—we need this information to help find solutions for the main sources of trash on our beaches!! Check out what we found in 2015 and 2016: Surfrider_VC_Chapter_2015_Beach_Cleanup_ReportSurfrider_VC_Chapter_2016_Beach_Cleanup_Report.

Thank you for your interest in helping keep our beaches clean. Look for the Surfrider tent when you arrive at a beach cleanup to check in!

Where to park at C St – The Surfrider tent and check in is located at where C Street meets the Promenade. The most convenient parking is at the multi-level parking structure but they charge and we don’t validate. There are a couple of free parking options within a short walk, check out the map below. The free parking on Paseo De Playa often fills up quickly but the free parking off Front St typically has space then you can take the walking bridge over the freeway to the promenade.
