COASTAL CLEANUP SEPTEMBER 19TH 8am – 12 noon.
Meet at the end of Seabright Road…the old Wolf Bay Lodge site.
The Alabama Coastal Cleanup is part of an international effort to remove marine debris from coastal waters. Alabama joined this effort in 1987. Since then more than 77,000 volunteers in Alabama have removed a total of 750 tons of debris and cleaned 4,582 miles of coast. The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the largest single-day volunteer event for the marine environment. Part of this unique experience is data collection. After years of collecting data on the specific types of marine debris being found, ICC data now focuses on the activities that cause the debris. The Ocean Conservancy compiles, analyzes, and tracks this data year-by-year and site-to-site to identify the activities and general sources of the debris in a region, state, or country.
