Join WILDCOAST and our partners Surfrider San Diego, the Tijuana Estuary, I Love A Clean San Diego, 4 Walls International, Tijuana Calidad de Vida and the rest of the Tijuana River Action Network members for our fourth annual Tijuana River Action Month!

Tijuana River Action Month (TRAM) is a community-driven month long series of binational cleanup and stewardship events to raise awareness of the specific challenges the San Diego-Tijuana border region faces due to Tijuana River pollution. TRAM takes place upon end of bird-nesting season and prior to the beginning of the rain season, giving a small window of opportunity to enter the sensitive endangered species habitat to remove trash and waste-tires before they are flushed into the ocean with the first rain event.

TRAM's goals are:

  • To mobilize a record number of volunteers in the cleanup and restoration of the Tijuana River Watershed to help prevent ocean-bound solid waste from impacting south San Diego's coastal and marine ecosystems.
  • To recognize key agency efforts from both sides of the border to decrease cross-border pollution.
  • To raise the awareness of the entire San Diego county population of the environmental and public health impacts of cross-border pollution.
TRAM 2013 will kickoff with Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday Sep 21, 2013:
