California Coastal Cleanup Day
Submitted By Cheryl Golden
Every year, on the third Saturday in September, people join together at sites across California to take part in the State's largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day. In 2012, over 65,000 volunteers removed nearly 770,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California's beaches, lakes, and waterways. Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs, and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California's fabulous coast and waterways. The event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by the Ocean Conservancy, which is the largest volunteer event on the planet.
In honor of the 30th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day, the City of Fremont will be hosting cleanup events at seven different locations on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you are interested in participating, please pre-register at www.Fremont.gov/CoastalCleanupDay to guarantee a spot. Drop-in participants are also welcome; however, some locations may be full at the time of arrival. Please note the City does not allow anyone under the age of six to participate in this event.
