Cleanup Day at East Beach to Mark Release of ‘Pacific Rim’ Film

This Thursday, the City of Santa Barbara Creeks Division and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper are teaming up with Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures to host a beach cleanup celebrating the release of the film Pacific Rim, hitting theaters on Friday.

The cleanup will take place from 8 to 10 a.m. at East Beach near the Mission Creek Lagoon and Stearns Wharf. Simultaneous beach cleanups are also taking place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Huntington Beach, Vancouver and Honolulu.

Beach cleanups provide a great opportunity for community members to help protect the ocean and beautify coastal areas.

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and RealD, the first 100 volunteers will receive a special Pacific Rim T-shirt and movie passes to see the film in 3D on opening weekend, as well as other prizes. Rincon Broadcasting radio station 99.9 KTYD will also be at the event broadcasting live.

Bags and gloves will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and sun protection.

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!
