Clean your way to the coast and help keep Napa clean during the 32nd  annual California Coastal Cleanup Day! This event is part of International and California Coastal Clean-up Day where thousands of volunteers in all 50 states and 100 countries take part in the world’s largest waterway and beach cleanup of the year!

In Napa County last year, over 420 volunteers cleaned 3,779 pounds of trash and 5,198 pounds of recyclables from Napa’s waterways! The CA Coastal Commission has produced an interactive map of cleanup locations in Napa County, along with every corner of the state, visit: www.coastalcleanupday.org
