Be an Ocean Eco Hero. Get outside and help planet earth! Browse beach and reef cleanups, restoration projects and other events to get involved and lend a helping hand to your beach, reef or forest.
Show the beach some love on the 2nd Sunday of the month! Join us for an Explore Ecology cleanup from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at beautiful Arroyo Burro Beach. Meet in front of the Watershed Resource Center (blue building) to sign in.
You are welcome to bring your own clean-up supplies or use ours. We’ll have buckets, plastic bags, and reusable or disposable gloves. Cleanups will be self-guided and can include the beach, the parking lot, or the open spaces surrounding Arroyo Burro.
Be sure to visit the Watershed Resource Center during cleanup hours to see interactive displays about local watersheds from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Participants will receive a coupon for a cup of chowder from Santa Barbara Shellfish Co.
Community service volunteer hours are available for this fun outdoor volunteer opportunity!
Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.
Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.
Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
