Monterey, CA diving community and local residents are being called upon to celebrate International Cleanup Day on Saturday, 19 September.
Monterey Bay Dive Company is proud to host this year s event and needs your help to target underwater and shoreline debris at San Carlos Beach. Project AWARE Foundation, the dive industry s leading environmental organization, coordinates underwater clean up events and urges divers and volunteers to jump in their wetsuits, pull on their gloves and make a splash for trash!
Project AWARE is pleased to support Monterey Bay Dive Company. Divers are the guardians of our underwater environments they often see first hand the effects of marine debris on our delicate ecosystem. This event is the largest single day volunteer event on behalf of our underwater environment. It s a fantastic example of how people can work together to take action. said Jenny Miller Garmendia, Director of Project AWARE Foundation.
If you re interested in participating, drop by the shop at 225 Cannery Row or give us a call: 831-656-0454. You can also email us for additional information: firstname.lastname@example.org.

MBDC is planning a BBQ and prize giveaway to be held in conjunction with the cleanup. We will also be providing free air fills on the day of the event to registered participants. All divers need to confirm participation before the day and will be required to bring their diver certification card and sign an Underwater Liability Release Form.
