  • Tunitas Creek Beach
  • 10 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Event Details
POST-protected Tunitas Creek Beach is a hidden gem to the South of Half Moon Bay that due to its secluded and challenging location, has been pretty badly polluted by visitors. Being such a long stretch of beach with a steep cliff at one end and long hike along and creek crossing at the other it makes collecting and removing trash and debris even more difficult. County of San Mateo Parks Department needs all hands on deck for their monthly clean-ups to keep this beach beautiful and its sea life safe and healthy. This is a great opportunity for groups of friends, families, co-workers, school groups, athletes, clubs to come together, have fun and really make a difference!
