Come Join Heal the Bay and Get Involved in Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday 09-19-09!

Hi everybody, I would like to encourage you to join Heal the Bay and Get Involved in Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday 09-19-09! Please follow the link below for more information. I'll be volunteering my time and making a difference. I'm thinking of choosing a CODE RED ZONE to make a bigger impact! I can't stand trash. Can you imagine how the sea creatures feel... We need to collectively be responsible for keeping their home in the ocean free from toxic pollutants and garbage! Sea life is counting on all of us to make a difference and preserve and protect their home. Sea life is absolutely depending on us to be responsible human beings...

On Saturday, September 19th, from 9:00 a.m. till noon, over 12,000 volunteers from all over Los Angeles will take action to rid our beaches and inland waterways of unsightly and harmful debris. Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is an international event with over 60 countries around the world participating, making it one of the largest volunteer efforts on the planet!

Come join us at one of over 70 cleanup locations throughout Los Angeles County. Find the one nearest you and help clean our oceans and beautify your community.

Last year, over 12,000 volunteers from Los Angeles County joined together to pick up over 180,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches and waterways. This year, lets all take the challenge to do more than that!

Coastal Cleanup Day is a fun way for individuals, neighborhoods, schools, community and company volunteer groups to get involved and demonstrate their commitment to healthy water. So bring your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to participate with the thousands of volunteers around the world in taking a stand against ocean pollution on Coastal Cleanup Day.

See you at the beach! (Or river, park, lake, or creek...)

California Coastal Cleanup Day is coordinated in Los Angeles County by Heal the Bay in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission and the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors.

For locations throughout the rest of California, please call 800-COAST-4U or visit the California Coastal Commission.
