Coastal Cleanup Day 2021
The 37th Anniversary of California Coastal/Inland Waterways Cleanup Day is Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and all month long!
Last year’s cleanup looked a little different, where volunteers cleaned up with own neighborhood and local natural areas in Camarillo. This year’s event will once again take place at two locations in Camarillo – the barranca off Mission Oaks Park, and Calleguas Creek at Paseo Del Campo and Creekside. During last year's Cleanup, a total of 1,052 volunteers were in attendance and removed over 6,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from 146 miles of Ventura County. Come join us this year to keep Camarillo and Ventura County's waterways free of debris!
