Summer's Here!

Summer officially began last weekend, but at San Clemente beaches, it looked like Summer began with the Memorial Day weekend! The Adopt-a-Beach teams are off to a great start, with over 90 hours of logged cleanup time on the beaches in May. However, I'm sure you've noticed that there is an increase in the number of people and the amount of trash on the beach recently! We'll have a tough job for the next few months, but we'll all have a little fun at the same time.

Coming up...

Summer time is full of exciting events in San Clemente!

July 4th - Independence Day: A big day for all of us, and the day after is one of the best times to get all the good trash ;) Have fun & please plan on hitting the beach post-4th of July!

July 18th & 19th - 2009 Ocean Festival: Come visit us at the festival!

September 3rd - Adopt-a-Beach Team Party: Our last party was a great success, so we've decided to have another one. On Sept. 3, please join us at the Community Center on Del Mar Avenue for another evening full of food, drinks, good times...and a bit of business.

September 18th - Art Auction: Mark your calendars for the biggest Adopt-a-Beach/San Clemente Watershed Task Force event of the year, the Annual Art Auction! This event keeps our program going, so invite your friends! As usual, it will be held at the Community Center on Del Mar Ave.

September 19th - California Coastal Cleanup Day: As if you needed an official day to cleanup! The Adopt-a-Beach program is sponsoring a special cleanup day in conjunction with this state-wide event to bring awareness to the San Clemente community. On this day, ask a friend to join you in a beach or neighborhood cleanup!

Summer Beach/Train Cleanups: There will be various scheduled community cleanups taking place this summer. As they come up, I will forward the details to you via email! Keep those bags and buckets close by!
