Coastal Cleanup Saturday, September 18, 2021

When: Saturday, September 18, 2021, 9:00am to 11:00am
Where: Mill Bend or Cooks Beach, Gualala

Over the last 17 years, Mendocino County has had 5,000 volunteers to remove almost 60,000 pounds of trash and 9,000 pounds of recyclables! The Redwood Coast Land Conservancy is proud to coordinate sites for the south Mendocino Coast Area and grateful to our partnering organizations that have committed to hosting cleanup sites this year 2021 and is appreciative of all the work the California Coastal Commission puts into keeping this event going strong year after year. This year, RCLC with be coordinating with Mendocino Land Trust to clean up Cook’s Beach and the Mill Bend bluff area.

Site captains will be able to provide supplies but if you have a bucket, trash grabber or gloves you can bring, this helps cut down on the amount of waste generated by the event. Bring a refillable water bottle and a mask for times when social distancing may not be possible.

If you won’t be in Mendocino County that day please visit for an interactive map of cleanup events happening all over California!

Please mark September 18 on your calendar and come out and lend a hand to protect your happy place.
