It's easy to participate! Simply follow the steps below, and you’'re on your way to having a great time at this year's Ballona Creek Cleanup Day!

1. Register
Although this step is optional, by registering with Heal the Bay, you'll be informed via e-mail of the latest news regarding your participation in this year's Coastal Cleanup Day. They will even send you a reminder right before the big day! Register today!

2. Select a Location
Culver City cleanup registration sites will be located on the Ballona Creek bike path at Syd Kronenthal Park, Duquesne Avenue, Overland Avenue, Sepulveda Blvd and at street side along the creek at Jefferson Blvd. and Hetzler.  

3. Print & Sign the Waiver Form
Everyone who joins us for Coastal Cleanup Day is required to sign a waiver. Although we'll have waivers at each cleanup location, your check-in will be smoother and faster if you arrive with your signed waiver. All volunteers under the age of 18 must have the appropriate liability waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian before participating in a beach cleanup. Please view & print a waiver, have it signed today, and bring it with you!

4. Zero Waste or darn near. 
Cleanup supplies are provided at all sites (trash and recycling bags, gloves, data cards, pencils). NOTE: This year we will be trying to make this year’s cleanup even greener. Bring buckets, garden gloves, and reusable water canteens to the event if you have them.

What to Wear
  • Be prepared for foggy or sunny weather.
  • Please wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
  • Dress warmly and in layers.
  • Long pants that can be rolled up, or shorts for hot weather.
  • T-shirt and a sweater or sweatshirt.
