Heal the Bay holds its annual California Coastal Cleanup Day today, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to noon with more than 60 coastal and inland sites across Santa Monica and Los Angeles.
More than 14,000 volunteers are expected to take part during the three-hour event locally. Across the rest of California, it is estimated more than 80,000 volunteers will take part at more than 800 cleanup sites.
Volunteers will be able to see for themselves the amount of trash generated in their community and learn how to be part of the solution to ocean pollution.
Last year, Angelinos collected more than 137,000 pounds of trash.
Locally, divers will hunt for trash below the surface at Santa Monica Pier. A free yoga class at Santa Monica beach will also be held for those involved in the day.
