Our annual September Adopt-a-Beach™ Event, part of the International Coastal Cleanup, will be on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 9 a.m. to noon. Schools may participate on the 20th or during the school week, before or after the official date.
Interested in hosting an Adopt-a-Beach™ event? As a team leader, you will help your students complete a litter monitoring form and a beach health assessment, which includes science-based observations and sampling. Then enter your results into the Adopt-a-Beach™ online system. Materials such as gloves, bags, data collection cards and bacteria kits are provided by the Alliance.
If you participated as a team leader in 2013, watch for a special email in early June and secure your place by registering before the next school year.
