For both locations: Parking is available on the street or in paid city parking lots nearby. The location is also easily accessible via the bike path on W Oceanfront and by bus (OCTA Route 1, which has stops on PCH). Look for our blue tent.

SPONSOR A CLEANUP

Help protect our ocean, waves and beaches by sponsoring a public cleanup or hosting a private one. Sponsoring a cleanup helps establish your company as a good corporate citizen and encourages brand loyalty. Cleanups also provide employees with a fun, accessible way to engage with their community, as well as strengthen employee team building and morale.
