Join Save Our Shores as we kickoff the clean beaches season in Monterey County with two upcoming events in honor of World Oceans Day: a beach cleanup bonus on May 14th, and a community happy hour on June 8th.
On Saturday, May 14th, from 10 am - 12 pm, join Save Our Shores for a beach cleanup with a twist at Del Monte/Municipal Beach located at Wharf #2 in Monterey. Beach cleanup volunteers will each receive a FREE ticket to the Monterey Bay Aquarium valid for entry during the Aquarium’s World Oceans Day celebration June 4-5!
All beach cleanup materials will be provided by Save Our Shores, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable buckets, gloves, and bags to help decrease trash generated at the event. Check-in will be near the bathrooms in the main Wharf parking lots.
Then, on Wednesday, June 8th, from 5-7pm, join us for our Kickoff the Summer for Clean Beaches happy hour to celebrate World Oceans Day. Come to the gathering and be introduced to the work of Save Our Shores where we aim to inspire citizens to take action for the ocean right in their own backyard.
The Kickoff the Summer for Clean Beaches party will help spread ocean awareness, encourage advocacy, and motivate Monterey area residents to take action for the ocean this summer. Light appetizers, beer, and wine will be shared with attendees at this free, informal event open to the public. The event will be held at Light & Motion, 300 Cannery Row in Monterey.
"Through regular beach cleanups and our upcoming ocean awareness events, Save Our Shores is helping to further the culture of ocean stewardship and volunteerism that make Monterey County such a unique and special place,” says Andrew Hoeksema, Coordinator of Volunteer Programs at Save Our Shores.
