Catalina marine life needs you at the 37th Annual Avalon Underwater Clean Up

37th Avalon Harbor Underwater Cleanup design, 2018 winner J. Gurantz

Looking to get out in the water this weekend? Want to combine that opportunity with the chance to raise funds for both the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber and the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies’ Scientific Diving Program? Then make plans to head on over to Catalina this weekend to take part in the the Avalon Underwater Clean Up. This annual event regularly brings together the California dive and scientific community to gather and discover the amazing world that is  “Yachtie” trash dumping. You never know what you’ll find, though booze bottles and beer cans will certainly be the majority of it.

You never know what you’ll find. Last Year somebody threw away a perfectly good poodle.

The great thing is you’ll have a chance to help protect and explore a pretty unique ecosystem in Avalon Harbor proper that is almost always off limits to divers while being continually impacted by human actions. The fish you save may be your own.
