California Coastal Cleanup Day will be this Saturday September 17. Our council is committing to the whole month of September. Scouts units in the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council can hold cleanups at any beach or waterway.
Attached links Conservation Programs. Scouts may use this event towards earning their Soil and Water Conservation Merit Badge, the BSA Distinguished Conservation Service Award Program , the Conservation Good Turn Award, Keep America Beautiful Hometown USA Award
The purpose of the cleanup is to beautify the beaches, learn about the coastal environment and have fun! Your unit can go to the same beach as last year, or you can change beaches if you choose. If your unit is new to California Coastal and Inland Waterway cleanup, please go to the beach of your choice. Volunteers from the various coastal organizations will be at selected beaches, please bring your own equipment and bags and gloves. Scouts should wear their uniform, a-unit t-shirt, or another for Scouting apparel while at the cleanup.
Every Scout Leader, and participating family member (brothers, sisters, cousins, parents, etc.) may earn a Coastal Cleanup patch for participating. The patch design won’t be revealed until the end of the month. The patch will be available for purchase at cost.
After your unit has completed the cleanup, please fill out the form below with the number of participates (youth and adults) qualifying for a patch and return to the San Jose Service Center by the end of the September. Patches can paid via check, cash or from your unit account. The unit leader will be contacted once the patches have been received.
