Pick Your Coastal Cleanup Day Project

Where will you go today to pick up trash? Grab your gloves and buckets—Half Moon Bay's beaches and coastline need your help.

The annual Coastal Cleanup Day is an opportunity for all of us to show a little extra love to the beaches that make California so unique. In our state last year, 63,000 volunteers collected and astounding 590,000 lbs. of trash.

This Saturday is Coastal Cleanup Day and environmentally minded Coastsiders will want to volunteer their time. There are a number of coastal and creek locations in the area from Montara to Half Moon Bay state beaches to Pillar Point Harbor, Purisma Creek and San Gregorio and Pescadero beaches that could all use your help.

Click through the photos attached to this article to find a listing of locations in Montara, Half Moon Bay, Pescadero, San Gregorio and unincorporated Coastside like Pillar Point Harbor and Gazos Creek.

Are you a kayaker or scuba diver? Turn Coastal Cleanup Day into an adventure—there are special projects just for you.

Some cleanup sites require preregistration, while at others you may just show up prepared to pick up trash.

The cleanup lasts from 9 a.m. to noon.
