Take part in the world's largest shoreline cleanup at Euclid Beach State Park!- September 15th, 10am-12pm

Join volunteers for a beach cleanup at Euclid Beach State Park as we take part in International Coastal Cleanup Day --the world's single largest shoreline cleanup-at Euclid Beach State Park! On September 15th, volunteers in partnership with the Ocean Conservancy and Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt-a-Beach program will clean beaches across the world's oceans and along the Great Lakes to raise awareness about the impact of trash on beach and water quality. Volunteers will not only remove debris, they will also record their findings. The data collected by volunteers is used to educate the public, share with local beach authorities and improve our beaches across the Great Lakes!

Before you hit up the beach cleanup on Saturday September 15th, don't forget to sign the Ocean Conservancy's pledge to Take on the Trash! Signing the pledge is simple – do what you can to reduce your trash impact, clean up an open space near you and hopefully, join the 27th annual International Coastal Cleanup this September 15th! 

We can all do our part to create clean beaches for everyone to enjoy, cleaner water for fish and wildlife, and healthier Great Lakes for those whose lives depend on it. But it’s going to take all of us coming together to make it happen!

Volunteers will meet in the park pavilion at 10am and should wear close-toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather-whatever the weather may be!. Refreshments will be available. Euclid Beach State Park is located at 16250 Lakeshore Blvd. Cleveland OH 44110.
