Post-Fourth of July Cleanup at Pirate’s Cove

The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate the birthday of our country. It’s a day filled with joy, fun and lots of treats! Unfortunately, a lot of pollution from fireworks and single-use plastics end up on the beach and eventually find their way to the ocean after this day of celebration. Join ECOSLO for a morning post-Fourth of July cleanup and data tracking of pollution at Pirate’s Cove to help prevent this pollution from entering the ocean.

We’ll be tracking all of the pollution that we collect on data tracking cards provided by the California Coastal Commission or on the Clean Swell app to keep statistics on what is being found on SLO’s beaches. There will also be a short presentation by an ECOSLO volunteer on the dangers of plastic pollution and ways that we can adjust our lifestyle to make more sustainable choices.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own bucket, gloves, water, and a snack. Bags and litter grabbers are provided.
