Each year during California Coastal Clean-Up Day in mid-September, the Coastal Discovery Center organizes public participation in the San Simeon Bay's beach clean-up, by providing litter bags and direction for clean-up volunteers. In addition, the Center offers Marine Debris programs which include education and beach clean-ups year round. Please RSVP by calling (805) 801-0773.
The Coastal Discover Center is a joint venture between the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and California State Parks. Located on beautiful San Simeon Bay, the Coastal Discovery Center celebrates the connection between land and sea. The Center offers interactive exhibits and education programs which highlight the cultural and natural history of old San Simeon, California State Parks, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The interface of land and sea is unique, drawing people for its rich bounty, economic opportunity, recreation and inspiration. Protection of these special places preserves them for use and enjoyment for generations to come.
