The Newport Back Bay has a lot of trash in it since the rains in early 2017 and now we want to remove it. Volunteers must wear sturdy shoes that can get dirty or water shoes or boots are even better. We will meet at Southwind Kayaks (100 N Bayside Dr Newport Beach, CA 92660) and it is not the easiest place to meet so make sure you understand where it is. There is a bridge on Pacific Coast Highway at the intersection of N. Bayside drive and Pacific Coast Highway. It is on the south side of the bridge. It is best if you look at a map first. If traveling south on Coast Highway you go over the bridge and turn left onto N. Bayside drive and then make your 1st left onto a private road. You then will go to the end of the parking lot and see the Southwind Kayak shop. That's where we meet. 9 A. M. sharp. If traveling north on Pacific Coast Highway you turn right before the bridge and then left onto the private road. Please come early because we leave the Kayak shop and will not be nearby soon after. If under the age of 18 you must bring a waiver signed by your parent/guardian to the event. You can find a waiver at https://newportbeach.surfrider.org/beach-cleanups/
We supply the bags and gloves. All volunteers should dress for the weather and bring personal items such as sun block.
