We encourage folks to clean the beach whenever they can, wherever they are. It’s as simple as remembering to bring a bag and leaving the beach cleaner than when you arrived.
Washington CoastSavers brings the partners of the Washington Clean Coast Alliance together three times throughout the year to conduct coordinated beach cleanups along the outer coast of Washington and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Washington Coast Cleanup is held on a Saturday near Earth Day in April. This cleanup has a long and productive history of cleaning the entire coast of Washington dating back to at least 2007. The 2020 Washington Coast Cleanup has been cancelled due to COVID-19. We plan to be back in full force for the 5th of July Cleanup and September for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) and look forward to welcoming you.
The International Coastal Cleanup, conducted in cooperation with the Ocean Conservancy, is held on the third Saturday of September. Join thousands of volunteers around the world to reduce marine debris. CoastSavers coordinates the cleanup of beaches up and down the state’s coast and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Our Adopt a Beach program is focused on public and county park shorelines in Clallam County on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Initiated in 2017 with support from the Benjamin M. Phillips Memorial Fund, individuals and groups have adopted locations for regular cleanups.
