CRA Lovers of Carmel Beach

One of the best-known CRA activities is the Carmel Beach Clean-Up program. It is also one of the oldest, dating back to the 1980s. In 2017, the CRA joined with Lovers of Carmel Beach to form CRA Lovers of Carmel Beach, making this venerable program even stronger. The goal? To help us create a clean and sparkling Carmel Beach.

But, this is just the start. With budget cuts looming and increasing requirements to maintain our complicated little town, the CRA is developing plans to maintain other unique aspects of the Village with your help. It truly does "Take a Village" so come out and have a great time with like-minded Carmelites making a different in our precious Village!

2020 Beach Clean-Up Schedule

We meet at the beach next to the Del Monte parking lot at the end of Ocean Avenue. You should bring a pair of gloves but we provide the pails and other collection equipment.

In general, we meet the third Saturday of the month from April through October from 9:30 - 12:00 noon. There is no sign-up required but we would like you to indicate a preference for volunteering so we can contact you. Please update your profile volunteer choices or email Daniel Cardenas at [email protected].
