Along with 80 locations at beaches, rivers and other Southern California neighborhoods, Echo Park Lake will be a site of the 2010 CA Coastal Cleanup day. Heal the Bay and the California Coastal Commission have teamed up for this event in Echo Park and need everyone’s help picking up trash and beautifying our community – 80% of trash found on beaches comes from an inland source, and last year 120 volunteers cleaned up 1,000 pounds of trash and over 6,000 cigarette butts around Echo Park Lake alone.
Signing up is easy! Just go to the Heal the Bay website and click on the “participate” button to the right. Click here to download the Echo Park cleanup PDF flyer to pass along to your neighbors and friends!
