San Clemente Times
On Saturday, Sept. 17 from 9 a.m.-noon, the community is invited to meet at the San Clemente Pier to participate in Coastal Cleanup Day. The registration tables will be located just north of the Pier, where participants will be provided supplies and assigned a location to clean. The cleanup will cover the coastline from North Beach to Calafia. The event encourages people to come together to take care of the marine environment.
“California’s coast and waterways collect large amounts of trash and debris that originated from human activities,” a press release from the city of San Clemente stated. “This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to marine wildlife, can damage our state’s economy and can be considered a human health hazard.”
