The Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day

Join me and the Surfrider Foundation - Ventura County Chapter for The Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day!

Protecting the environment and tackling waste production has never been more important. Come with friends and family to clean up the beach, discuss relevant legislation and give back to our public lands. Assemblymember Steve Bennett and Surfrider Foundation-Ventura County Chapter will be cleaning the Ventura Promenade area. For more information, visit this cleanup website or call (805) 641-3700.

Parking & Meeting Place: Where to park at California Street
You will check in at the Surfrider Foundation - Ventura County tent. Check in is located where California Street meets the Promenade. The Crowne Plaza Hotel has graciously offered free parking for volunteers in their valet lot! Please mention Surfrider beach cleanup when you arrive and tip when you leave.

There is additional parking available in the multi-level parking structure, but they charge and neither my office or Surfrider validate. Additionally, there are various free parking options within a short walk, including parking on Paseo De Playa (fills up quickly) or free parking off Front Street, with access to the walking bridge over the freeway to the promenade. View a map of the area.
