Your Day, Your Happy Place with Street to Beach Cleanups

Take advantage of Earth Month to volunteer and do your part and help the planet and the nudibranchs.

Litter Pick Up


  • Plant native plants such as the Silver Lupines which are essential to the survival of the Mission Blue Butterfly (Earth Honoree 2022)
  • Remove invasive weeds
  • Plant native plants to your area, bigger patches will help attract pollinators
  • Find alternatives to pesticides such as neem oil
  • Compost your green waste and use it to build a healthy and biologically diverse soil
  • If you can, leave some sections of your yard wild (to not remove dead plants, brown leaves etc…) this helps insects and birds
  • Read these gardening tips from the California Native Plants Society

Habitat Restoration

Tell us how you did! Send us pictures and a summary of your efforts via email info [at] We look forward to hearing from you!

Report your beach cleanups efforts with the Clean Swell app!

Learn with Educational Activities

April 1st to ongoing:

Nudibranch Module for Teachers and Homeschooling

The Pacific Beach Coalition’s 2023 Earth Honoree is the nudibranchs. These fascinating sea slugs teach us about biology, acidification of our ocean and so much more.
We’ve compiled a virtual lesson plan to bring the Nudibranch into your classroom. Register your classroom and receive a free educational module about the nudibranchs (PDF), buttons and bookmarks for each of your students (while supplies last).

Subjects covered in this module include:
• Biology
• Match
• Science
• Art
• English

There is a lot of activities in this PDF so it might take a couple of seconds to load.

Other Activities to Print, Always Available on Our Website

Over the years, we have been gathering a lot of different activities that can be done by kids of all ages either for a school projects or just to keep some children occupied at home.

Please visit our different toolkit and feel free to print any of the activities we selected for you below.
