California's annual Coastal Cleanup Day brings thousands of volunteers to pick up plastic and other debris along our beautiful shorelines up and down the state. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to join the fun and fellowship of caring for our waterways here in Benicia, along our Carquinez Strait beaches and other sites.
