Register for Coastal Cleanup Day!

Clean Manhattan Beach. Win prizes. Make a difference.

Join us alongside hundreds of thousands of volunteers all around the world! On September 15th, the world will work together to protect our oceans and our planet. Take action with us!

The Roundhouse Aquarium is working with Heal the Bay to coordinate the Manhattan Beach Pier site. Last year, we had over 300 volunteers in Manhattan Beach alone and we picked up 80 pounds of trash and 35 pounds of recyclables! We’re hoping for an even more successful event this year!
