50+ volunteers brave the chill to clean Euclid Beach Park!-Join Adopt-a-Beach Volunteers on May 19th at 10am for our next beach cleanup...and Chilli Peppers!

That's one pair of dirty shorts...I hope it's all just sand!

Adopt-a-Beach(tm) cleanups are in full swing at Euclid Beach State Park after another great cleanup for Global Youth Service Day and Earth Day on Saturday April 21st when over 50 volunteers including middle school students form Univerisity School in Shaker Heights, Accenture, CBCG Incorporated, Case Western Reserve Environmental Law Society and the community braved the cold, wind and rain to collect 150 pounds of trash (an improvement over last month's 226 pound of trash!) and 20 pounds of recyclables!  Most collected were 428 cigar tips and 320 plastic caps/lids. Unique items included a faux Louise Vuitton purse with a diary and sand filled gym shorts! And a huge thank you to Steve Newman, owner of Chili Peppers restaurant for taking 50% off delicious tacos and burritos for lunch after the cleanup!

Mark your calenders for our next beach cleanup on Saturday May 19th from 10am-12pm. We will meet in the park pavilion at 10am! Prizes for the most trash collected will include Chilli Peppers Gift Cards:)

Beach cleanups are from 10am-12pm on the 3rd or 4th Saturday of the month at Euclid Beach Park.
