Save Our Shores is seeking volunteers to participate in this year's Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday. The event, now in its 30th year, is the largest community cleanup of the year.
Save Our Shores will lead cleanups at 70 spots in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties from 9 a.m. to noon.
The event spans the globe, with volunteers in more than 100 countries, and about 3,000 community volunteers are expected to participate locally.
"Due to drought conditions, we have the unique opportunity to clean exposed shoreline at the Loch Lomond Reservoir,” said Rachel Kippen, Save Our Shores program manager. “I am hopeful for volunteers' assistance, as it is a priority for healthy water quality.”
Cleanup sites will include Davenport Main Beach, Panther Beach, Cowell/Main Beach, San Lorenzo River, Sunny Cove, Aptos Creek, Soquel Creek, Watsonville Slough, Elkhorn Slough and Sand City Beach.
