Saturday April 22nd Earth Day - Reef and Beach Cleanup
Makai Research Pier
We are partnering with SUSTAINABLE COASTLINES HAWAII to host a reef and beach cleanup!
Join us for an Earth Day Celebration focused on giving back and keeping our reef clean. SCH is teaming up with Hawaii Eco Divers, Island Divers, One Ocean Diving and Keiko Conservation to add an underwater element that will incorporate a SCUBA, SNORKEL, and FREEDIVE cleanup!
Check in and cleanup starts at 9AM and lasts until 11:30 AM. Park at Makai Research Pier or take one of our buses to the site from Waimanalo Beach Park. Buses will begin departing at 9:30AM.
If you are SCUBA certified and want to dive, bring your certification card and your own equipment. Gear and tanks are available, but first come first serve! For SNORKELERS and FREEDIVERS you must bring your own gear. We have limited supply of mesh bags so if you have one please bring it! Please be gentle when removing nets and plastics from our fragile coral reefs. Dive knives and scissors strongly recommended for removing fishing lines and nets from the reef.
Our goal is to remove the underwater debris that is destroying the reef and endangering sea life.
After the reef cleanup, please join us at Waimanalo Beach Park by 12PM for music, food, games and more! Please consider the environment when briat Kaiser High School nging your own reusable plates, silverware and cups! Please no plastic! :)
Last year we had over 600 people help cleanup up 10,000 lbs of trash off the beach. Help us clean up even more this year with our first underwater cleanup to keep our coastlines clean and inspire year-round coastal stewardship not only through beach cleaning, but through simply using less plastic every day.

Please join us Sunday March 5th at Waimanolo Beach Park from 12-4pm for our latest beach cleanup event in partnership with Keiko Conservation and Water Inspired Conservation Group. In addition to diving along to reef to collect fishing line and lead weights, the focus of this cleanup will be on picking up land based marine debris making its way into the ocean as well as sifting the sand for micro plastics or “nurdles". We will also have a Keiki education hour and yoga session at 11:00am before the cleanup brought to you by Core Power Yoga. The event will be great for all ages and is a fun way to get the whole family involved. We will have prizes for people who collect the most trash from One Ocean Diving, Guayaki, Core Power Yoga, Xcel, Keiko Conservation, Shells4Sharks, Clark Little and more!
** If you decide to clean the reef PLEASE bring your own scissors and/or dive knife to cut any fishing line! Pulling on the line will only cause more harm and potentially damage the reef. REMEMBER corals are living organisms so please be gentle!**
The cleanup will take place at Waimanolo Beach Park. We will start there and make our way down the coast toward Makai Pier collecting as much plastic and marine debris as possible. Check out the map and photos above for the specific location and directions. Be sure to bring a reusable bag to collect debris, a pair of gloves, sunscreen, snacks and water. We will have a limited supply of mesh bags, scissors and sifters available for use but feel free to bring your own if you have extras!
This cleanup will also feature our partner Keiko Conservation’s latest campaign the #NerdsAgainstNurdles challenge for a chance to win a free sunrise shell necklace from our non-profit benefit line Shells4Sharks. Collect as many pieces of plastic or garbage as you can, make an image of your favorite sea creature or spell out a conservation message, post it on Instagram with the hashtag “#Shells4SharksGiveaway”. Multiple entires are also welcome if you want to get a head start and practice your #NerdsAgainstNurdles designs at a beach near you before the cleanup. You don’t have to be present at the cleanup to participate, so be sure to tell your friends to maximize our collective impact! The winner of the contest will be announced at the end of the cleanup. We can’t wait to see your submissions!
