LOS ANGELES -- The LMU women’s tennis team participated in the 28th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day this past Saturday, Sept. 15. The Lions helped clean up Toes Beach in Playa del Rey, Calif. along with other LMU clubs and organizations and hundreds of local community members. The team volunteered to pick up trash and debris at the event set up by the California Coastal Commission’s Public Education Program.
The Cleanup Day is the state’s largest volunteer event. As recently as 2010, over 82,500 volunteers across the state removed more than 1.2 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes and waterways. In combination with the International Coastal Cleanup organized by the Ocean Conservancy, which took place the same day, the California Coastal Cleanup Day is one of the largest volunteer events in the world.
The Lions’ fall schedule begins Friday, Oct. 5 with the Cal State Fullerton Tournament in Fullerton, Calif.
