The Fourth of July is often Ventura’s busiest beach day of the year with thousands flocking to the shoreline to enjoy a day of sand, sun, and fun. Unfortunately, anyone who’s seen the aftermath also knows that in the past the holiday can produce more trash and litter of any other beach day. What will it look like this year?

The Surfrider Foundation Ventura County Chapter and public volunteers will find out on Sunday July 5th. The “Morning After Mess Cleanup” will take place at Pierpont Beach on Sunday, July 5 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Meet at the end of Seaward Ave. and look for the Surfrider tent to sign in.

Surfrider encourages everyone to take an active role in preventing the trashing of Ventura County’s beaches this July Fourth holiday weekend and all year long. A major goal for this holiday weekend is to prevent litter at our local beaches and parks. Avoid single use items such as expanded polystyrene / ‘styrofoam’ coolers and plastic water bottles. Bring reusable items to the beach and be sure to recycle or bin anything else.
