You might soon be fined $25 for smoking at California beaches [View all]

More than 65,000 volunteers are expected to turn out at beaches from Oregon to Mexico on Saturday for the 35th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day — a massive event that takes 2,500 miles of littered shorelines, including the shores of rivers, creeks and lakes, and turns them into gleaming landscapes.

The event runs from 9 a.m. until noon, and volunteers can still sign up by going to www.coastalcleanupday.org.

This year, however, there’s a new twist: It might be the last year where cigarette butts are the most numerous item picked up. Two bills to ban smoking at all state beaches — with a $25 fine for violators — have reached Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk and await his signature.

Former Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed similar bills three times, saying people should be allowed to smoke outdoors in parks.
