California UNDERWATER Cleanup Day | Saturday, September 15

Coastal Cleanup Day began with just 2,500 volunteers statewide in 1985. However, this year’s countywide event will build upon the success of last year’s cleanup, at which 5,850 volunteers removed 196,966 pounds of debris from over 165 miles of San Diego’s inland areas, waterways, coastlines and border, making the event the largest volunteer event in San Diego County.

The San Diego Oceans Foundation is proud to be the UNDERWATER Cleanup Organizer on Saturday, September 15th. This year we will be cleaning up the waters of the Embarcadero in San Diego Bay! This area accumulates trash blown into the water and dumped from the stormdrains in downtown, as well as illegal littering from boater's anchored in the nearby cove. This is a great opportunity not only to dive in a location normally off limits to divers, but to improve the quality of our oceans in a hands on, exciting activity!
