Saturday, Sept. 24th - ADOPT A BEACH

 

Adopt a Beach

Since the first cleanup in 1986, more than 488,000 Texas Adopt-A-Beach volunteers have picked up more than 9,200 tons of trash from Texas beaches, some of it originating from as far away as South America.

Due to tide patterns in the Gulf of Mexico, trash dumped anywhere in the gulf is likely to end up on a Texas beach. Keeping Texas beaches clean and safe is an economic as well as environmental priority.

The program strives to:
•raise public awareness; 
•educate citizens about the source of debris; and 
•generate public support for state, national and international action to clean up coastal waters. 
  

The Texas Adopt-A-Beach program, an all-volunteer effort, is dedicated to preserving and protecting Texas beaches. The program's success is due to the generous efforts of dedicated volunteer county coordinators, coastal community leaders, sponsors and citizens. Strong support from the private sector helps carry our message to Texans all across the state.

Beach cleanups are a great way to engage in a team building exercise while doing something great for the environment.

 When/Where:
