Ventura County Coastal Cleanup Day
September 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the Ventura Land Trust at Emma Wood State Beach group camp area! Join as we clean and clear cigarette butts, bottles, trash and plastics from the area so it doesn’t end up polluting our ocean and wildlife.
This beautiful area has been neglected in recent times, and we need the community’s help to deal with large trash piles that build up from illegal camping. Multiple endangered species call Emma Wood State Beach home, and it’s one of the last natural sand dune systems in Southern California. Let’s work together and make it safe and clean for the plants and animals who live here!
* Please wear a long sleeved shirt, long pants, and closed-toe shoes (preferably hiking boots) to this event. There is thick brush and poison oak present around the work area. We will be out in the sun so make sure to wear a hat, sunscreen, and bring a reusable water bottle! Please remember, this cleanup will focus on trash removal from abandoned homeless encampments. Participants are likely to get dirty, so please dress appropriately.
* Please note: Cleanup volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Due to the nature bio-hazardous materials occasionally found at cleanups, we do not encourage young children to participate in these events. Please see our Events Page for more family-friendly outings!
Be sure to RSVP!
