UPDATE: Event rescheduled due to rain.
Summer is almost over, so what better way to close it out than to help clean the beaches that bore the brunt of our summer vacations?
Mark your calendar for the 32nd annual coast wide Fall Beach Cleanup on Saturday, October 6 at 30 sites along the coast. This year our fall cleanup coincides with the International Coastal Cleanup, so you’ll be joining millions of people in clearing trash from beaches around the world.
Thousands of Texans from across the state will head to the beach to voluntarily pick up trash left behind on our beaches or washed ashore. Our last Adopt-A-Beach, coast wide cleanup in April attracted more than 4,900 volunteers who removed more than 40 tons of trash from Texas beaches.
Online volunteer registration is now open at TexasAdoptABeach.org, or volunteers may also register at most check-in sites on October 6 between 8:30 am and 9:00 am. Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and sunscreen, bring water and wear a hat. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. A number of check-in sites provide cold drinks, hot food and fun activities for the whole family. Contact the site coordinator for more details.
