5th of July Beach Cleanup

A project to clean up the beach was carried out on July 5th of this year.

Each year, Crescent City and Del Norte County welcome anywhere between 5,000 to 15,000 visitors to celebrate the 4th of July. An important attraction among the impressive program of events is the beach, where as many as 1,000 people can congregate. In 2023, 60+ volunteers participated in our event to pick up this trash and keep our beaches clean. Volunteers were given gloves, bags, and vests to aid them in their efforts to collect as much trash from the beaches as possible. Refreshments and lunch were also provided to thank our amazing volunteers. We cleaned up 3,290 pounds of trash and firework debris in just 3 short hours
