Abalone Cove Beach Cleanup 2019
The City of Rancho Palos Verdes will be having their Abalone Cove Beach Cleanup day on May 11, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Since the big tsunami several years ago, residue has slowly continued to arrive here on our coastline (in addition to our own local waste). Join the Rancho Palos Verdes Recreation and Parks Department for beach cleanup during low tide. Abalone Cove is a beautiful natural beach with tide pools, rock formations, and abundant sea life.
Palos Verdes homes owners have some of the cleanest beaches and we can all do our part to keep them this way. Heal the Bay is again reporting that Palos Verdes beaches and coves are in the current top Honor Roll 2017-2018 list for California. This means that our local waters have received grades of A and A+ throughout the year. Heal the Bay assigns weekly grades to more than 440 sites along the West Coast for summer dry-weather water quality and to another 60 locations that are on year round monitoring. Heal the Bay is a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to making Southern California coastal waters and watersheds safe, healthy and clean. They use science, education, community action, and advocacy to pursue their mission.
Come and join neighbors and friends at Abalone Cove and be a part of this fun volunteer day. Please remember to wear closed toe shoes, possibly a hat, and don’t forget your sunscreen. There will be a 10-15 minute hike down dirt trails to the beach.
Abalone Cove is located at 5970 Palos Verdes Drive South, Rancho Palos Verdes. For more information email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to sign up click here.
