harbor beach, beach cleanup

Also known as Pacifica State Beach, Linda Mar is a wide crescent-shaped beach favored as a local surfing spot and one of the most loved and used beaches in Pacifica by residents and visitors alike. Located adjacent to Highway 1, it features a coastal trail stretching along the beachfront to enjoy from one end to the other and is critical habitat for the threatened Western Snowy Plover. In addition to beach cleanups, it is the site of native habitat restoration events providing hands-on learning experiences for participants.

Site Captains: Meet Ana Garcia and Jim Fithian. Together, this husband-wife dynamic duo has been active coalition members and co-captains since 1997.

About the Cleanup!

Time: Third Saturday of the month from 9am-11am. Check our online monthly calendar for exact dates. Rain may cancel the cleanup. If you’ve registered in advance, you’ll receive a cancellation notice. If you have not registered, check our calendar for the latest information.

Where to Meet: At the southern end of the main parking lot (near Taco Bell).

Parking: Fee to park. However, when you check in, site captains provide a parking pass good for use during your participation in the cleanup. Should you stay beyond cleanup hours, fees apply. The daily fee to park one vehicle in the Parking Lots through June 30, 2020 is $7 for a period of less than 4 hours and $9 for a period of more than 4 hours (or all day).

Additional parking is available at Crespi Parking Lot on the east side of Highway 1 at corner of Crespi Drive (adjacent to Pacifica Community Center).

Cleanup Areas: The parking lots, promenade and the beach.

Supplies: Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own buckets and reusable gloves. Extra gloves, buckets, pickup sticks and specific tools for this site cleanup will be provided while supplies last. Because we are never sure of the weather, make sure to bring extra layers, a hat, sunblock, water and snacks.

Litter: Expect picking small and large pieces of trash from this popular beach site. Linda Mar site is a designated Japanese Tsunami Marine Debris Cleanup Program location. Each year, Post 4th of July Cleanups also take place to remove toxic fireworks debris before it washes out to the ocean and becomes harmful marine debris.

Restrooms: Yes (with outdoor showers at parking lot). Open 6am-10pm.

Be sure to read through the Cleanup Guidelines before attending a cleanup.
