Volunteers Clean the Beaches This Weekend

To sign up to volunteer go here.

It’s the 31st annual Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Coast-wide Spring Cleanup this Saturday.  It’ll be taking place at 28 of Texas' most popular tourist beaches.  “We have nine sites in the Houston area, Galveston Island being out largest one,” says state coordinator Rene Tuggle.

"The Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup is a great day at the beach for a great cause," says Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. "There's no better way to get ready for summer season by cleaning up our Texas beaches at one of our 28 sites along the coast!"

“It’s earth day so it’s going to be a great day to take care of the environment,” advocates Tuggle. Volunteers will each be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. Everyone is advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., Clean-up will be from 9 a.m. to noon.

"Keeping beaches clean is not just an environmental issue-it's an economic one as well,” says Commissioner Bush.
