Chumash to Host Coastal Cleanup Day Event at El Capitan State Beach

The Santa Ynez Chumash Environmental Office is hosting a beach cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 20 at El Capitan State Beach.

This public event is part of a Coastal Cleanup Day, a statewide effort to keep oceans and beaches free of debris that can harm habitat, wildlife and visitors.

El Capitan State Beach is located along the Gaviota Coast, 25 miles west of Santa Barbara. While the event is open to the public, RSVPs are encouraged. Cleanup supplies will be provided, but the SYCEO urges participants to bring reusable gloves and buckets in order to reduce the amount of waste generated from the event.

There is limited free parking at El Capitan for those participating in the cleanup.

For more information about El Capitan State Beach Cleanup and to RSVP, please contact Julie Colbert at the Santa Ynez Chumash Environmental Office at 805.691.1329 or [email protected].

The SYCEO was established as a department of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Tribal Government in 1998. Its mission is to responsibly manage natural resources for sustained social, cultural, spiritual, and economic prosperity. The SYCEO administers several programs in the areas of waste, water, energy and more.

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!
