As part of Drone Community Service Month, the Los Angeles and Orange County Drone User Group (LA/OC DUG) assisted with the California Coastal Cleanup on September 21. The LA/OC DUG shot aerial footage of the cleanup for the benefit off the El Dorado Nature Center and the California Coastal Commission, which were sponsors of the event. They will be posting the aerial videos on their respective websites and in other promotional materials. The daylong cleanup is the largest volunteer event in California.

Representatives of the El Dorado Nature Center were excited to be able to capture the event from a new perspective. LA/OC DUG is already planning future community service projects to perform in cooperation with the El Dorado Nature Center.
