September Adopt-a-Beach

September 21, 2019

Thousands of people participate in September Adopt-a-Beach every year — a Great Lakes day of action, dedicated to volunteering and cleaning up our region’s shorelines.

Last year, Adopt-a-Beach volunteers picked up over 36,000 lbs. of litter from their local beaches. More than 85% of it was plastic. Tackling litter and plastic pollution in the Great Lakes is no small task, but together we can make a difference. Join us for September Adopt-a-Beach on September 21, 2019!

Look out for cleanup events near you, or become an Adopt-a-Beach Team Leader and create an event of your own. 

September Adopt-a-Beach is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, so you’ll be joining millions of people caring for their local shorelines all over the world. See you on the beach!
