The Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day

Protecting the environment and tackling waste production has never been more important. Come with friends and family to clean up the beach, discuss relevant legislation and give back to our public lands. Assemblymember Steve Bennett and Surfrider Foundation-Ventura County Chapter will be cleaning the Ventura Promenade area.

Saturday, September 17
9 a.m. - Noon

Parking & Meeting Place: Where to park at California Street
You will check in at the Surfrider Foundation - Ventura County tent. Check in is located where California Street meets the Promenade. The Crowne Plaza Hotel has graciously offered free parking for volunteers in their valet lot! Please mention Surfrider beach cleanup when you arrive and tip when you leave.

Additional parking is available at the multi-level parking structure, but they charge and neither Asm. Steve Bennett's Office or Surfrider do not validate. There are a couple of free parking options within a short walk.
