Beach Cleanups
San Diego BIG partners with I Love a Clean San Diego (ILACSD.org) and we are members of the Mission Beach Town Council. ILACSD has two main cleanups in San Diego, often with over 170 sites per event across San Diego County. They continue to be San Diego’s leading environmental organization in San Diego County connecting over 60,000 youth and adults with the local environment each year. SD BIG hosts one of these sites at South Mission Beach for both the Creek to Bay in April and the Coastal Cleanup Day in September. We often get up to 200 volunteers that come to this location to help keep our beaches clean. Check out the our photos!

While we are based with volleyball, this will be our main focus as we grow as a nonprofit. If you have an interest in any of our other project, please submit inquiries and how you would like to support these additional efforts in the community and email our president at BIGKahuna@SanDiegoBIG.org.
