It is that time of year; time for Texans to take care of our beautiful beaches.

Texas General Land Office announced that the Adopt-A-Beach Fall Cleanup will be held  Saturday morning, October 6.

Despite a recent postponing of the event due to weather, Texans all over the state have been itching to storm the beaches and clean them up for the sake of the environment.

It is more important than ever to reduce the number of pollutants in our water and on our beaches. If you are looking to get involved, registration begins at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday at several different locations . The clean-up will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon.

Volunteers will receive data cards, gloves, pencils, and trash bags upon registration, and are recommended to wear close-toed shoes, sunscreen, and to also bring plenty of drinking water.

Thanks to the Adopt-A-Beach sponsors, volunteers will also be entered to win an RTIC soft pack can cooler or one of five 20-ounce stainless steel water bottles.

Since its inception in the fall of 1986, more than half a million volunteers have removed nearly 10,000 tons of trash from Texas beaches.

People unable to attend the cleanup can do their part by making a tax-deductible donation online at www.TexasAdoptABeach.org  or by purchasing an official Adopt-A-Beach specialty license plate . There are several different Adopt-A-Beach sponsorship levels ranging from $25 to $25,000, allowing both individuals and corporations to contribute to this major cleanup effort.
