Join us this year for a monthly Cleanup at Phil Foster Park Beach! If you’ve been to Phil Foster Park, you know why we want to protect it.
Divers and beachgoers flock there throughout the year. With white sand beaches, blue water, and exotic marine life, it’s no wonder why. This local park is home to one of the most famous shore diving sites in the world, the Blue Heron Bridge.
Last year, we removed over 250 lbs of trash from the beach. In 2019, we removed over 450 lbs of trash from Phil Foster Park and the surrounding waterways. Help us break a new record this year!
Pura Vida is hosting cleanups every month as part of our Adopt-A-Park sponsorship. Join us! Become part of a community that not only cares for the environment but takes action to preserve it.
CLEANUP AT PHIL FOSTER PARK BEACH SCHEDULE
WHY JOIN US?
Beach cleanups are a great way for all age levels to give back. Grab your family and friends, and head over to the park! Meet us there each month to clean the beach. Removing trash from beaches reduces the amount of pollution that ends up in the ocean. It helps to save vulnerable marine life and their environment.
All ages are welcome. You do not need to be scuba certified to participate. Kids who volunteer for cleanups can earn community service hours required by their schools.
CLEANUPS: WHAT TO EXPECT
Most are land-based beach cleanups. Walk the shoreline at Phil Foster Park Beach to collect marine debris before it enters the water.
Some cleanups throughout the year also have an in-water opportunity to remove trash from the reef. Be on the lookout for those in Spring and early Fall. Join us for the Great American Cleanup in April and the International Coastal Cleanup in September.
Tally items as you go by using the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell App.
PVD pros will be on hand during each cleanup to help volunteers sort and report marine debris.
COME PREPARED WITH:
Make sure to attend the Cleanup at Phil Foster Park Beach with the following in mind:
- Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own gardening gloves.
- Cleanups take place outdoors. We recommend loose, comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes.
- Reef-safe sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are highly recommended.

BEACH BUCKET FOUNDATION
Can’t make it to one of the scheduled beach cleanups? Don’t worry! You can use Pura Vida Divers’ sponsored bucket from the Beach Bucket Foundation.
Grab our bucket from one of the locations at Phil Foster Park Beach. Fill it with trash and marine debris as you walk the shoreline. Participate in your own beach cleanup any time you visit the park!
