Later this month, on April 20th, Carlsbad is rolling up their sleeves once again for the 22nd Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup. In partnership with the City of Carlsbad and I Love A Clean San Diego, we're on a mission to remove 30,000 pounds of litter in a single day!

Registration is open, so mark your calendars and be sure to secure your spot early! CVA member Engel & Völkers is hosting the Carlsbad Village location. Click here to learn more.

So gather your friends and family, roll up your sleeves, and join us as we unite and show our planet some love. Together, let's make everyday Earth Day!
