Can’t Make It? You Can Still Take Action!

Your Day, Your Happy Place with Street to Beach Cleanups

Take advantage of Earth Day to volunteer and do your part and help the planet and the whales.

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
