California Coastal Cleanup Day
By Danny Mejia, PE | Community Service Committee Co-Chair
Coastal Cleanup Day is California's largest annual volunteer event. It is an opportunity for people across the state to clean our creeks, rivers, lakes, coast, and shorelines of all kinds to help restore our environment. Virtually every body of water in California ultimately flows to the ocean, and that water can carry a lot of trash. ASCE OC YMF and our volunteers participated by picking up trash at Huntington City Beach. It was rewarding to see how much trash we were able to remove!
