The Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association has announced its first two major events of the year—the first Adopt-a-Beach cleanup of 2013 and the 5th Annual Grunion foot race.
The “Love Your Beach” cleanup will be held Saturday, Feb. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon.
“Let’s ‘love’ Doheny back to good health after the runoff from the winter rains,” said Ed Neely in his monthly DSBIA newsletter update.
Volunteers should bring their own work gloves and meet at Lifeguard Headquarters, adjacent to the mouth of San Juan Creek.
Then, on March 9 at 7:45 a.m. the beach will be the site of the annual Grunion Run—a 10K, 5K and kids’ 1K organized as part of the Dana Point Festival of Whales.
More information about the Grunion Run can be found on the Festival of Whales website at www.dpfestivalofwhales.com
