Celebrate Independence from Pollution - Cleanup on July 5th

Pick up the pieces

Join the City of Watsonville and Save Our Shores for a Star Spangled Cleanup on July 5th at Palm Beach State Park from 9AM - 11AM.

The Fourth of July holiday is a time for celebration and festivity, yet there is an ugly side of the occasion that often goes unnoticed; the morning after. Every year, thousands of pounds of firework debris and beach party materials are left behind in parks, sloughs, streets, rivers, and along our coastline, ultimately polluting our watershed and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

This year, in addition to encouraging our residents to celebrate responsibly and cleanup after all Fourth of July gatherings, the City of Watsonville is co-hosting a beach cleanup at Palm State Beach from 9AM - 11AM with local nonprofit, Save Our Shores. Participants will gather at Palm Beach State Park near the parking lot and will be provided with all necessary cleanup supplies. The cleanup crew will start at the State Beach and extend efforts south towards the Pajaro River mouth. Volunteers should dress in layers, wear sunscreen, and bring a filled, reusable water bottle. Questions can be directed to Rachel Kippen, Environmental Projects Coordinator: Rachel.Kippen@cityofwatsonville.org10426879_10152231200994632_8120825968322759240_nIMG_9023-Large-1000x650
