Avalon Underwater Cleanup
Once a year, Avalon Harbor is closed to boats and open for divers to pick up trash at the bottom of the bay. Awards are given to the oddest, oldest and most valuable finds. For the second time since the event began, divers will be able to dive at Lover's Cove. Lover's Cove is a protected marine preserve by the State of California and is normally closed to divers. The event attracts as many as 500 divers. Proceeds of the dive benefit the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber and the Catalina Conservancy's Robert R. Given Fund.
