Clean the beach, test the water, weigh the trash, March 19

Join the Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach Team for the first Spring Beach Cleanup at Euclid Beach Park, Saturday March 19, 10am-12pm -- and take part in World Water Day 2011. Volunteers will meet in the park pavilion at 10 am and then head down to the beach with the indefatigable Stephen Love, to collect trash and recyclables (an eye-opening experience, Stephen reports), conduct beach observation and interactive water quality tests and wrap things up at 12 pm with refreshments, pictures, a trash-weighing contest, World Water Day activities and a look at upcoming events for spring-summer 2011. Wear closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Disposable gloves, trash bags, trash pickers, rakes and refreshments will be provided. The entrance to Euclid Beach Park is at 16250 Lakeshore Blvd.

If you miss this one, there will be more: April 16, 10am-12pm; May 21, 10am-12pm; June 18, 10am-12pm. For more information on the Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach Team, e-mail or call 216-571-0685.
