The Fourth of July is not only San Diego’s busiest beach day of the year with hundreds of thousands flocking to the shoreline to enjoy a day of sand, sun, and fun. Unfortunately, anyone whos seen the aftermath also knows that the holiday produces the most trash and litter of any other beach day. Last year, more than 1,000 volunteers collected over 8,000 pounds of trash.yea, 8,000 pounds. Come on litterbugs!
So, San Diego County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, in cooperation with Sun Diego Board shops, have stepped up once again to keep our beautiful beaches clean and safe. They are inviting the public to join them in this years “Morning After Mess” beach clean up event, Saturday, July 5 from 8am to 11am. The Morning After Mess cleanup will organize volunteers to assist workers picking up the massive amounts of trash left at six San Diego County beaches from Oceanside to Ocean Beach over the Fourth of July holiday.
The six sites are Ocean Beach Pier, Belmont Park in Mission Beach, PB Drive in Pacific Beach, 15th St/Powerhouse Park in Del Mar, Ponto Beach in South Carlsbad, and the Oceanside Pier.
