After the 4th of July cleanup

We will be cleaning up early Saturday morning July 5 from 7 AM to 9 AM at the Newport Pier. We will be set up close to the base of the pier at 20th street on the Balboa Peninsula. All participants must sign in at the event. If you are under the age of 18 and being dropped off you must have a signed waiver from your parent/guardian. You can copy and print one here. https://newportbeach.surfrider.org/beach-cleanups/ If you light off fireworks on the 4th of July please clean them up so that they dont get washed down the storm drains located on the street. If they go down the storm drain they have a good chance of getting lost in the Ocean.
