Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup volunteers sought for Saturday

Employees of FUGRO Marine GeoServices and their families joined us in cleaning up Galveston Island last fall.

Volunteers are needed for the nation's biggest all-volunteer coastal cleanup on Saturday

The 2018 Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup takes place at 27 sites along the Texas coastVolunteers can sign up at one of the locations online to take part in a fun-filled day at the beach that makes a difference.

"The Texas Coast is a go-to destination for vacationers from all over," said Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. "Travelers want to play in the sand under the Texas sun. Late last summer Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas coast, but the recovery is well underway and this is an opportunity for folks to pitch in and declare that the Texas coast is back in business. The Adopt-A-Beach program has been instrumental in keeping beaches clean for more than three decades, aiding tourism and commercial fishing industries while maintaining the coast for Texas families. The Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup is a great day at the beach for a great cause. There's no better way to get ready for summer season by cleaning up our Texas beaches at one of our 27 sites along the coast."

Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water. The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Cleanups are held rain or shine.
