Fall Coastal Cleanups

Our coastline is one of our most precious resources and all of us must chip in to keep it pristine.  SoundWaters is leading the charge, but needs everyone’s help.  We host seasonal clean-up days when we will provide you with gloves and bags to walk the public shoreline and pick up human debris.  We weigh and catalogue everything collected before disposing of it in the appropriate manner.  Coastal clean-ups are ideal for friends, families and teams.

All ages are welcome and please wear sturdy shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty and/or wet and bring garden or work gloves.
