“Dear Woody,Thank you for participating in Heal the Bay’s 23rd annual Coastal Cleanup Day!  Despite scorching temperatures, Southlanders showed up in droves on Saturday to pick up nearly 20 tons of ocean-bound debris!

Your efforts spanned 56 miles of local beaches, inland waterways, regional parks and urban neighborhoods to remove 38,598 pounds of trash. Cigarette butts, plastic bottles and caps, snack-food packaging, plastic bags and Styrofoam fragments were among the most frequently found items.

Among the unusual found objects was an aspiring actor’s tattered headshot discovered by divers near the Santa Monica Pier. Only in L.A.!

Check out more photos from the 58 cleanup sites and stay connected with Heal the Bay on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve also added you to our monthly enewsletter to stay in touch.

If you enjoyed Coastal Cleanup Day, join us for our monthly beach cleanups every third Saturday from 10 a.m.- noon. Can’t make it to our next cleanup? Just $20 can help run a cleanup site in your neighborhood.

Thanks for your hard work!
