Coastal Cleanup Day on the Morro Bay Sandspit RSVP
Service and Citizen Science on the Sandspit
Keep Morro Bay clean and gather important data for the Ocean Conservancy on Saturday, September 15!
ECOSLO organizes the county-wide efforts for International Coastal Cleanup Day, and the Estuary Program is happy to lead the cleanup charge on the North and Central Morro Bay sandspit.
Space for the sandspit cleanup is limited, please fill out the form below soon to secure your place on the boat. Thank you!
You can also find additional cleanup spots in Morro Bay and beyond on ECOSLO’s Coastal Cleanup Day website.
We’ll meet at Morro Bay Landing at 8:15 a.m. to sign in and hear about the Morro Bay sandspit’s vulnerable snowy plover population. Then, at 8:30, we’ll catch a boat ride with Captain Stew’s Bay Cruise over to the north end of the sandspit to start our cleanup. (Everyone must sign in before boarding.) Once we land, we’ll clean the beach and tally the types of trash we find.
We will depart the sandspit for the Embarcadero between 12:00 and 12:15 p.m. Please keep an eye out for an email from the Estuary Program the week before the event.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you are not able to make the cleanup. We often have a waiting list for the event. Thank you!
Morro Bay National Estuary Program brings together citizens, local governments, non-profits, agencies, and landowners to protect and restore the Morro Bay estuary.
