Volunteer information
Press and posters

Every year ECOSLO is amazed at the number of volunteers that join us in this event, and the Cleanup would not be successful without them! Volunteers remove trash and marine debris from coastlines and waterways in SLO County as well as collect data that ECOSLO then reports back to the California Coastal Commission. This data is compiled into reports and used to influence policy.

ECOSLO has been the San Luis Obispo County Coordinator for Coastal Cleanup Day since 2006.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered or sponsored the event over the years. The event would not be possible without you!
