Does your yacht club want to be part of the state’s largest volunteer and family oriented event? Check this website to find out how your yacht club can organize and participate in a fun and unique event: The California Coastal Cleanup Day is celebrated every year in September on the third Saturday, from 9 a.m.–Noon.
In 2016, 34 boating facilities and 864 volunteers cleaned 44.5 miles and collected 17,249 pounds of trash and recyclables on land and by sea using 64 vessels (kayaks, canoes and dinghies). Thirty percent of these volunteers brought their own reusable cleanup supplies. Considering the fact that CCD supports SCYA’s mission of environmental stewardship and promoting safe, enjoyable, and environmentally sound boating, this program has been endorsed by SCYA since 2012. Get involved in this annual event, it’s a great way to give back to the community and establish your center as a local environmental leader.
For information on how to participate, visit http://www.coastal.ca.gov/publiced/ccd/boating.html or contact the coordinator: Vivian Matuk, (415) 904-6905. We hope your boating facility can be part of this worthwhile event.
