We are advocating to protect California Marine Life by eliminating plastic from our National Park.
Pickers, gloves and buckets are available but donations gratefully accepted to supply these and to support our youth ocean education program.
Since 2015 we have been monitoring and segregating marine debris, recycling and working to reduce ocean pollution. Over 100,000 butts have been picked up. Over 3000 youth have participated over this period. Let’s make the Park smoke free and the ocean healthy by stopping overfishing and limiting marine pollution.
COVID Safety required: masks and social distancing a must.
Public · Anyone – kids especially welcome- join us and table for a plastic free ocean.
