April 22nd is EARTH DAY, so what better way to show your love for our beautiful planet than joining us for a beach cleanup!
The Alamitos Beach Cleanup is a fun way to support the local environment! Held every fourth Sunday of the month (Next date: Sunday, April 22nd from 10 AM - 11 AM) at Alamitos Beach in Long Beach (on Beach Access Rd, off of Shoreline Drive and Ocean Blvd).
Our partnership with Adopt-A-Beach allows us to provide bags, gloves, and parking permits (for the duration of the clean up) to volunteers!
Individuals and groups of any size are welcome to join in! If you're bringing a large group, please give us a heads up with a rough head-count so we can be sure to have enough supplies on hand. Otherwise, just come as you are and join in on the fun!
Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I sign Up?
No need to sign up in advance, just come down to the beach and sign in when you arrive.
What do I wear and/or bring?
You’ll be walking on the beach, and weather can vary from month to month, so layers are always a good option. Don't forget sunscreen!
We’ll provide gloves and bags for the clean up (through our partnership with Adopt-A-Beach) so you don’t need to bring any supplies. However, please feel free to bring your own trash grabber, since we don't offer them. Bringing reusable bags or buckets for trash is also helpful in reducing our waste.
Can I bring my group?
Yes, please! If possible, please email Vanessa at alamitosbeachcleanup@gmail. com a week before the cleanup with a rough head count so we can be sure to have enough supplies on hand for your group.
