Donate to Keep Beaches & Shorelines Litter-Free

Donate now to keep beaches clean and plastic-free this summer. Our Adopt-a-Beach volunteers pick up tens of thousands of pounds of litter off Great Lakes beaches every summer. And 89% of it is plastic. Your gift today will help put volunteers on beaches — and keep trash off.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes works to protect the Great Lakes for today and tomorrow.

We involve tens of thousands of people each year in advocacy, volunteering, education, and research to ensure the lakes are healthy and safe for all.

Protect the Great Lakes this Election Season

The Great Lakes face many threats — from invasive species to failing water infrastructure to harmful algal blooms. To protect our water, we need elected officials at all levels of government who are willing to stand up for the Great Lakes. We’ve created a new toolkit to help Great Lakes voters like you stand up for the Great Lakes in the 2018 midterm elections.
