Saturday, Sept. 20 Ojai Creek Cleanup Day


On Saturday, September 20, from 9 A.M. through noon, the Ojai Valley Green Coalition invites the public to join them and the Ventura Countywide Coalition for Coastal and Inland Waterways. That morning, participants will remove and record litter from Ojai Creek running through Libbey Park. Ojai volunteers are asked to sign in at 8:45 A.M. at the Libbey Park lower tennis court parking lot off S. Montgomery St. in Ojai.

Be one of 60,000 people to take part in the California Coastal Cleanup Day 30th anniversary event! Volunteers will remove debris from the coast, creeks, rivers, lakes and shorelines all around California protecting wildlife from harm while taking care of our environment.

The California Coastal Commission estimates that 80 percent of the debris on California beaches originates from inland and then washes out to the ocean. Last year volunteers collected nearly 750,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes, and inland waterways.

Coastal Cleanup Day takes place every year on the third Saturday of September, is the nation’s premier volunteer event focused on the marine environment, and offers a way for students, neighbors, families, and service groups to join together, have fun, and show community support for the stewarding of shared natural resources.
