Earth Day is is Saturday, April 22nd. Not coincidentally, so is the 31st Annual Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup, hosted by the Texas General Land Office.
Wherever you are in the Coastal Bend, there's a beach nearby that's in need of a little sprucing up.
Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water.
The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Cleanups are held rain or shine!
Everyone who signs up online and checks in at their cleanup location will be entered to win a RTIC 20 Soft Pack cooler or one of five Sony Portable Wireless Speakers (Bluetooth + Waterproof). The random drawing will take place after the cleanup. Winners will be contacted directly.
For more information and to volunteer, visit www.texasadoptabeach.org.
Registration for all sites begins at 8:30 a.m. The cleanup at all locations will take place from 9:00 AM to Noon.
