NAMEPA: Marina Cleanup Day, June 11th and All Year Long!

Associations, Charity, Environment — By on June 8, 2017 at 6:15 PM

Marina Cleanup Day for Trash Free Seas

Whether at the Dock or on the Water,
Everyone Can Make a Difference
What?
The Ocean Conservancy, the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), the California Coastal Commission and the California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways invites all boating facilities, boating groups, sailors, fishermen and water enthusiasts alike to consider celebrating the aquatic ecosystems we love by holding a marina or boating facility cleanup as part of the National Marina Day celebration! By boat, on foot, at your local marina or elsewhere, please join the movement!
Why?
One of the most universal problems we face when it comes to a clean and healthy ocean is quite simple to understand: trash. Marine debris is found nearly everywhere, from coastal inlets to remote open-ocean and from surface to seafloor. Impacts of ocean trash are vast and significant, threatening wildlife, human health, local economies, tourism, fishing, water quality and maritime safety. Fortunately, we can all play a role in the solution.

Need Ideas?

Consider incorporating a cleanup activity into your National Marina Day celebrations (June 11) or hold a cleanup after 4th of Julyfestivities. The summer months are busy, so “Marina Cleanup Day” can be whenever you’d like it to be! We’ll be sending Cleanup Toolkits throughout the summer.
Register your marina, yacht club, boat ramp, etc. Whether at the dock or on the water, everyone can make a difference!
