Site captains: Julie, Melinda & Laurel
Where to Meet: On the coastal trail by the Pillar Point RV Park (4000 Cabrillo Hwy, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019). This is north of Surfer Beach and right next to the Half Moon Bay south jetty.
Parking: Free if you park alongside the road. $10 if you park in the parking lot next to the RV park.
Cleanup Areas: We will cleanup the beach and the rocks when there is a low tide. During high tide, we will focus on cleaning up the trail and the bluff all the way to Miramar (if desired).
Supplies: Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own buckets and reusable gloves. Extra gloves, buckets, and specific tools for this site cleanup will be provided while supplies last. The weather is changeable: make sure to bring extra layers, a hat, sunblock, water and snacks.
Litter: Expect to pick up plastic wrappers, cigarette butts, fishing gear and line, other debris and recycling.
Restrooms: There is a public restroom by the boat launch or south by Miramar.
Be sure to read through the Cleanup Guidelines before attending the cleanup.
