Summer Clean Beaches Campaign (led by HOPE Services) 
With the increased use of our beaches over the summer months and the decrease in groups and volunteers available to clean the beaches, it is a real challenge to keep them clean. To meet this challenge, the Pacifica Beach Coalition has partnered with HOPE Services to clean the beaches in Pacifica over the summer months. Through HOPE's Community Based Activity Program, the Pacifica Beach Coalition has hired several young adults to clean 4 beach sites in Pacifica. This program is designed to give people with a wide range of developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in community service. You're invited to join these important cleanups where the young adults of HOPE relish the opportunity to work and socialize with the community at large. For more info about HOPE Services, go to

Schedule Your Own Cleanup
When you're inspired to cleanup at the beach or other site on your own, we'd like to hear from you. The numbers through organized events of the Pacifica Beach Coalition are already impressive (see Past Results). Pacifica has led the way for the rest of the Coastside in its environment-restoring program. We'd like to add and document your efforts. Print out instructions and the Clean Up Data Collection Form before heading out to your clean up location.  Please read through the Cleanup Guidelines to avoid injury or distress.
