Community Mural & Graffiti Paint Out

Help beautify our community with murals and graffiti removal. We remove graffiti from areas that are heavily tagged at the request of neighbors and Santa Cruz County Public Works. This is a group project that your family can join.

Additionally, we paint one mural a year - planning for this year's mural will begin in May of 2022.

Beach Clean Up

Join us in the efforts to keep our local beaches clean by picking up trash and debris. Keeping trash off of our beaches helps keep toxic chemicals out of the ocean and provides a safer environment for wildlife. It’s also a great opportunity to spend some time outdoors with friends and family! Gloves and trash bags are provided.
