Volunteers Needed to Haul In Trash Off Local Beaches

Santa Barbara County residents can participate via local beaches in the 24th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Californians will join hundreds of thousands of participants worldwide clearing trash and debris from our beaches, shorelines and inland waterways.

Last year, volunteers in Santa Barbara cleaned 17 locations throughout Santa Barbara County; collecting about 1,600 pounds of trash and 1,000 pounds of recyclables in three hours. 

Cleanups will take place at the following beaches in Santa Barbara County: Arroyo Burro, Gaviota State Beach, Leadbetter Beach Butterfly Beach, Goleta Beach, Refugio State Beach, Chase Palm Park Guadalupe Beach, Rincon Point Beach, East Beach, Haskell’s Beach, Santa Claus Lane Beach, El Capitan, Jalama Beach, Tajiguas Beach, Ellwood Beach, Jelly Bowl Beach and West Beach.

Volunteers may show up at one of the beach sites listed and a beach captain will provide necessary instructions and supplies.

For more information, click here or call local coordinator Jody Rundle at 805.882.3602.

William Boyer is Santa Barbara County‘s communications director.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
