NOTE: if coming from Pacifica, go past the first Montara Beach parking lot, and turn in to the lot right next to the restaurant.
Parking: Free.
Cleanup Areas:We will clean the beach, the bluffs, the parking lots, and both sides of the road from La Costanera restaurant to the north parking lot.
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, burnt pallets, other debris and recycling.
Restrooms: There is a public restroom in the South Parking Lot – South of La Costanera restaurant.

Spangler’s market from Half Moon Bay is now providing free drinks and snacks. Thank you Spangler for taking care of our volunteers!
