Make a difference for the Great Lakes in your community.


Each year thousands of volunteers clean up beaches on all five Great Lakes. Adopt-a-Beach volunteers are on the front lines of keeping litter, most of it plastic, out of our lakes. And they collect valuable data on what they find for researchers to use worldwide. Learn how to join a cleanup – or start one of your own!
