beach-trash.jpgLong Beach’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine and the Litter-Free Long Beach campaign are teaming up to lead the Second Annual Independence from Litter Beach Cleanup on July 5, the day after the city’s annual fireworks and Fourth of July celebration.
This year, volunteers will clean up a quarter mile of the beach on either side of the Belmont Veteran’s Memorial Pier. The beach cleanup will be from 10 a.m. to noon.
This is a fun and educational event for kids and adults. Everyone is welcome to join in to help keep the beaches clean, safe and beautiful. Just show up at the beach. Gloves, trash bags, refreshments, music and free T-shirts will be provided.
There will also be educational displays for children, including Windows on the Water, a self-contained tidepool that helps teach kids about marine life.
The city’s Litter-Free Long Beach campaign is a citywide effort to create a cleaner and safer Long Beach by cleaning up neighborhoods and educating residents and businesses about the negative impact of litter. The cleanup is part of the Sea Festival, which began last week and will run through the end of August with sporting competitions, movies on the beach, theater and many other cultural, recreational and family events.
