Join Heal the Bay’s Nothin’ But Sand August 2023 Beach Cleanup!

Celebrate National Water Quality Month this August with Heal the Bay. Help us keep our ocean clean and safe for all at our Nothin’ But Sand Beach Cleanup on Saturday, August 19, 2023.

Enjoy a day of environmental fun in the sun for the whole family, raffles PRIZES, and important conversations about our local water quality.

The Heal the Bay Beach Team is ecstatic about the opportunity to partner with this month’s cleanup sponsor, Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream, and we’d love it very “mochi” if you joined us on the shore!

The Safe Clean Water Team will also be on the sand to answer all your questions about L.A.’s Safe Clean Water Program, and our city’s initiatives to keep our watershed healthy, and its waters safe, for everyone.

Reserve your bucket today and get energized to make a huge impact.

Love that great feeling you get when you help protect the environment? Mark your calendar for September 23, 2023, and join us on Coastal Cleanup Day, the biggest environmental impact day of the year!

We’ll “SEA” you on the sand!

Cleanup location:

201 Paseo de la Playa

Torrance, CA 90277

Meet at Miramar Park to check-in, hear the safety talk, and receive your cleanup supplies before heading down to the sand.

Each volunteer registers individually unless they are with a group or family

  • Individuals ages 18+: Register, check in upon arrival and you’re good to go. Your registration confirmation = a signed waiver form
  • Individuals ages 14-18:  Have a parent/legal guardian register AND sign a waiver form, bring the signed waiver form with you to the cleanup.
  • Individuals under 14: Have a parent/legal guardian sign a waiver form AND be accompanied by an adult at the cleanup
  • Families: Reserve a ticket and write in the names of your partner/children, check in upon arrival and you’re good to go. Your registration confirmation = a signed waiver form for your family
  • Groups: Reserve a ticket and write in the names of group members. Have members sign a waiver form and bring it with them, submit a digital waiver, or sign a waiver upon arrival. Minors need a signature from a parent/legal guardian.

Sold out? If general admission sells out, you can register at the cleanup. However, you will be responsible for bringing your own cleanup supplies.

Sign a Waiver

  • Individuals over 18 and Families sign a virtual waiver through Eventbrite (when reserving a ticket).
  • Groups have members sign a waiver form and bring it with them or sign a waiver upon arrival.
  • Individuals Under 18 must have a legal guardian sign a waiver form  before participating. 

Service hour forms will be signed by a beach captain at the end of the cleanup.  Please bring the form you need signed or request a service hour form on the day of the cleanup as we cannot verify service hours after the event.

When you show up

  • Be prepared to be outside for 2-3 hours. Beach weather can be unpredictable, so we recommend dressing in layers.  Drinking water is available at all cleanups.
  • Help make Nothin’ But Sand a zero-waste event by bringing your own buckets, garden gloves, and a reusable mask and water bottle.
  • These events are rain or shine. We will notify all registered attendees in the event of a cancellation. We will also update our social media pages accordingly.
  • If you have any questions or concerns please email Stephanie Gebhardt Rath, our Beach Programs Manager, at sgebhardtrath@healthebay.org

More Information

Heal the Bay would like to thank the California Coastal Commission for helping Heal the Bay host our monthly Nothin’ But Sand cleanups year round.

2022 Heal the Bay volunteers removed more than 14K lbs. of trash from Los Angeles County Beaches and with your help we hope to make an even bigger impact in 2023.

Register asap as our buckets go quickly and we’ll “sea” you on the sand.

Please note: Heal the Bay only guarantees cleanup supplies for the first 300 people who are registered.


We would like to acknowledge that this cleanup will take place on the traditional lands of the Tongva People, and we pay respect to elders both past and present.
