Join us Saturday, September 16 from 9 a.m.—Noon to help make the Inner-Coastal and Watershed Clean Up Day 2017 one of the largest volunteer events of the year! The team from St. John’s will be doing coastal clean-up right in our own backyard at the uppermost reaches of the San Juan Creek watershed, which ends at Doheny State Beach. Please invite your friends and neighbors to join you!
The St. John’s team meets at 8:30 a.m. at the Trabuco Creek Bridge where we’ll register and then get to work. The bridge is at Trabuco Canyon Road and Trabuco Creek Road. DO: Bring gloves, hat, trash bags, and reusable water bottle(s). Long pants and closed-toed shoes are strongly recommended.
REMEMBER: Minimum age is 10 and children must be with an adult.

Be among the thousands of olunteers from all over Orange County to don gloves and scour Orange County’s beaches and inner coastal waterways in an effort to rid them of trash that would otherwise end up in the Pacific Ocean. Last year 7,288 individuals came together to remove over 56,610 pounds of trash and recyclables from Orange County beaches, parks, and creeks!
