Volunteer beach cleanup Saturday in Playa del Rey

Beachfront location that the locals call Toes Beach.

The November Nothin' but Sand beach cleanup is set to take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at Toes Beach in Playa del Rey.

Hosted by Heal the Bay, the cleanups are held on the third Saturday of each month at different locales and are an opportunity to help keep our local shores tidy.

All cleaning supplies will be provided, so volunteers are welcome to just show up (those younger than 12 need to be accompanied by a parent).

Attendees should plan on bringing their own drinking water as well as a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. More information on what to wear and bring is available on the Heal the Bay website.

Liability waivers will be available on site and must be signed before pitching in. Participants 17 and younger must have a parent or guardian sign their form.

Volunteers should plan to meet in the parking lot at Pacific and 62nd avenues. Parking is either metered or available along Pacific Avenue, north of Culver Boulevard near Del Rey Lagoon.

Note that if it is raining steadily at the start time, the cleanup will be canceled. However, if the rain has stopped or it is just raining lightly, the cleanup will go on as scheduled.

Groups of 10 or more are asked to e-mail Eveline Bravo or call (800) 432-5229, Ext. 148, to let organizers know they plan to join in.
