Join Us for a Cleanup!

 In Beach Clean-up, Community Event, Family Friendly

Show the beach and your neighborhood some love! Join Explore Ecology for Friday Cleanups  throughout Santa Barbara County in April through June. Kick off your weekend, enjoy the sunshine, and be part of the solution to ocean pollution by picking up litter before it becomes marine debris.

Ten community cleanups will be held on Fridays from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

Upcoming cleanups include:

  • April 30th: East Side Public Library
  • May 7th: Montecito Public Library
  • May 14th: Alice Keck Memorial Park

Free Explore Ecology Cleanup Kits will be available while supplies last. Each kit includes a bucket with cleanup instructions, reusable gloves, hand sanitizer, and instructions on how to use the Clean Swell app to record litter.

Masks are required so it’s a safe cleanup for all.

Stop by one of our cleanups on Friday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:30 and get your free litter cleanup kit. We hope to see you there!
