Cancelled – Volunteer Now for Earth Day of Action

Due to COVID-19 and the current circumstances we are cancelling our 2020 Earth Day of Action.

It is with extreme sadness that we are cancelling the 2020 Earth Day of Action. We want everyone in our community to remain safe and healthy. Please still enjoy the Ocean and we hope that you can celebrate Earth Day and its 50th Birthday with your family and a small group of peers.


EARTH DAY OF ACTION 2020 – April 25th 9am to 11am

For the 16th year in a row, Pacific Beach Coalition is organizing one of the largest eco-friendly event in California, leading beach and neighborhood cleanups from Daly City to Half Moon Bay from 9-11am and then hosting a large EcoFest at Linda Mar State Beach with food, fun, music, eco-booths, hands on kids activities, environmental speakers from 11am – 2.30pm.

Last year, 9,198 volunteers removed nearly 3,588 of trash, 768 of recycles, and 14,873 cigarette filters. See all results here!
