Monthly Beach Cleanups

We always have fun at beach cleanups!
We always have fun at beach cleanups!

We conduct beach cleanups at a different location each month to ensure the cleanliness of our city’s beaches, all while engaging with you! We are open for suggestions, so if your beach needs help, let us know! Contact our Beach Cleanup Coordinator, James, at beachcleanups@vb.surfrider.org.

Beach cleanups are open to everyone! These events are family-friendly, so feel free to bring the kids along! We will provide gloves, grabbers and bags, so all you need to bring is your positive energy, reusable water bottle and sunblock. Always check the weather beforehand, dress appropriately and be prepared for inclement weather. The beach may be several degrees hotter/colder than inland temperatures depending on the wind and sun.
