CORPUS CHRISTI - One person's trash can become another person's treasure on Saturday, November 2 from 8:30am - 1:30pm. For the past 27 years, Adopt-A-Beach has hosted numerous beach-cleaning events. For the first time, this year, the Texas General Land Office is hosting a competition to clean Malaquite Beach.
The upcoming event is a four-wheel drive beach-cleaning competition. Coordinators for the cleanup say they already have four teams but need four more to make it competitive. To sign up for the Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup Expedition go to www.texasadoptabeach.org.
Each team will gain points for different items they pick up on the beach. Teams with the most points will win prizes.
Check-in is located at the Malaquite Visitor's Center, 20420 Park Road 22, Corpus Christi. The Texas General Land Office will provide transportation for the trash hunt. Though participants do not have to bring their own vehicles, they must be 18 or older to enter. Reservations are required.
