While it’s been too cold for Adopt-a-Beach, we’ve been cooking up some big things here at the Alliance. We’re happy to share that this year, we are launching a new and improved Adopt-a-Beach website.

New Website Launches March 18th

The new Adopt-a-Beach system will streamline the process for volunteers to find and sign up for events (no login!). It will also make it super easy to manage your cleanup event (mobile friendly!). And the new system will be flexible to change with the times as the program grows. 

The new site will launch on March 18th, and we’re planning several in-person and online training sessions for team leaders in the coming weeks. The training sessions will include a demo of the new system, allow time for questions, and give team leaders everything needed to for a successful Adopt-a-Beach event. 

Spring Kickoff April 25th

This year, the Adopt-a-Beach season will kick off with one day of action on April 25th, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Cleanups on any date in April are welcome, but we’re planning some fun things around Earth Day on April 25th. 

Before the March 18th launch, team leaders will not be able to create cleanup events. Once the new site launches, team leaders will be able to create events, and volunteers will be able to find and register for cleanups. 

We’re so excited to unveil this new, user-friendly site in time for the Adopt-a-Beach season. Keep your eye out for updates, behind-the-scene sneak peeks, and some special surprises in the coming week to celebrate the site launch and the 50th anniversaries of Earth Day and the Alliance! 

The new site was made possible thanks to the generosity of the Fund For Lake Michigan
