Saturday, September 18 is Coastal Cleanup Day across California.
The day centers on volunteer-run efforts to remove trash and clean plastic pollution at beaches and waterways. It is part of Coastal Cleanup Month, which is observed in September.
The Central Coast, home to miles of creeks and coastline, is rallying volunteers to lend a hand from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
In San Luis Obispo County, volunteers can join the Creeks to Coast Cleanup, which runs from Sept. 16 to Sept. 30.
More than 74,000 volunteers removed trash from beaches and waterways in 2019.
