Annual 5th of July Beach Clean-Up

The event will target three main beach areas: South Beach, Crescent Beach, and Pebble Beach. As Crescent City and Del Norte County prepare to welcome between 5,000 to 15,000 visitors for Independence Day celebrations, the threat of pollution looms large. Last year, volunteers at the clean-up collected a staggering 3,290 pounds of trash and toxic firework debris.

In collaboration with key partners including California State Parks, the National Park Service, Smith River Alliance, CalTrans, and the Del Norte Solid Waste Authority, RPC is mobilizing volunteers to tackle the litter with a focus on a 2-mile stretch along Crescent City’s South Beach. This collective effort is essential in mitigating the harmful effects of pollution on the ocean and the marine life that calls it home.

“By joining forces on July 5th, we reaffirm our commitment to the well-being of our coastal environment,” added RPC Executive Director, Sal Munoz Moreno. “Every volunteer who joins us on July 5th is making a tangible difference in protecting our coastal ecosystem and preserving the natural beauty of Crescent City.” To learn more or sign up, click here.
