Next Beach Cleanup: Dunes Beach – Sat. October 12th
Next Beach Cleanup: Saturday from 10AM to Noon
This cleanup is organized in partnership with Sea Hugger, another great non-profit organization aiming to reduce waste and to preserve “mama” ocean.
About Dunes Beach:
Half Moon Bay State Beach is a single state park made up of four beaches: Francis Beach, Venice Beach, Dunes Beach, and Roosevelt Beach. It’s a favorite spot for sunbathing, picnics, surfing, fishing, and camping.
North of Venice Beach is Dunes Beach, reachable from Highway 1 via Young Avenue. Like Venice Beach, parking here is usually easier to come by and crowds are less likely. A number of short, sandy trails lead from the parking lot to the beach below.
Site Captain: Shell from Sea Hugger.
About the Cleanup:
Time: From 10am-Noon. Rain may cancel cleanup.
Where to meet: At end of the parking lot. Look for the tent.
Parking: Dunes beach is a state park so there is a fee to park.
Cleanup Areas: Beach, trail and parking lot.
Supplies: Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own buckets and reusable gloves. Extra gloves and buckets 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 up cigarette butts, food wrappers, cans and bottles. There will also be micro plastic and styrofoam along the tide line. If you have a shovel or some type of scoping tool, you can help us grab these little plastic nurdles and place them in the trommel!
Restrooms: Yes by the parking lot.
Dogs: Not permitted on the beach only on leash on the trails.
