Coastal Clean Up Day in Dana Point Sat Sept 21st, 2013

Every year, on the third Saturday in September, which would be this September 21st 2013, people join together at sites all over California to take part in the State's largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day.

In 2012, over 65,000 volunteers removed almost 770,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California's beaches, lakes, and waterways. Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs, and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California's fabulous coast and waterways. 

Here's more information about all the locations happenning in Orange County.
