Most of the locations for this Saturday's Coastal Cleanup Day (view complete map)

This Saturday morning, some 11,000 volunteers at more than 70 beaches and inland sites throughout the LA area will be participating in Heal the Bay's Coastal Cleanup. They estimate that this year's cleanup will mark their one millionth pound of picked-up trash since the event began in 1990.

And with so many sites, there's always room for more people to join in on the volunteering. Just go to their website and find a location near you. From cleaning up around Echo Park Lake with Councilman Eric Garcetti to a Kayak flotilla picking up ocean-bound debris (and not to mention scuba divers at Santa Monica Pier), there's plenty of opportunities to go around.
