The November Nothin' But Sand beach cleanup is set to take place Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon at Will Rogers State Beach.

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

Paid parking is available at a metered lot at Chautauqua Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway. Volunteers should plan to meet at lifeguard tower 18, just southwest of the Chautauqua / PCH intersection.

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 waiver forms 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.

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