About us

Drains to Ocean is dedicated to protecting our oceans, rivers and beaches one drain at a time.

Drains to Ocean is a grass roots, non-profit organization with a mission to keep pollution from flowing into rivers, lakes, and oceans. We believe that every drain matters. Our goal is to create awareness by educating the public and empowering local networks of active volunteers to participate in neighborhood, river and beach cleanups.
