Beach and River Cleanups

Cleanups are typically offered on the 1st Saturday of each month at Prospect Street beach in Newport Beach, the 3rd Sunday of each month at the Newport Beach Farmers’ Market at Newport Pier, and the 4th Saturday of each month in the Santa Ana River Channel as part of the “Adopt-A-Channel” program.

See below for the upcoming schedule and please visit our social media channels for any last minute updates regarding weather changes, etc. If you are interested in bringing a group of 10 or more people, please email chair@newportbeach.surfrider.org at least one week in advance.

All cleanups, unless otherwise indicated, run from 9-11 am and all participants must sign a waiver. People under 18 must have a parent or guardian fill it out. Click here to complete the waiver in advance and streamline the check-in process. *Select Newport Beach as the chapter hosting.
