International Coastal Cleanup Sept. 17th

We will see you Saturday, September 17th, Kailua Beach Park, 10am-12pm

Over the past 25 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has become the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Nearly nine million volunteers from 152 countries and locations have cleaned 145 million pounds of trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers, and the ocean on just one day each year. We will be sorting and counting our trash. This is the only country by country, state by state, city by city record of marine debris pollution. More on the ICC at Ocean Conservancy. Clean-ups will be going on at sites across Hawaii Sept. 17th as part of "Get The Drift & Bag It," Hawaii's contribution to the ICC.
Won't you join us?
When: Saturday, September 17th, 10:00am: Check-in, 12:00pm: Join us for the trash tally and a low-impact potluck lunch. Stay for raffle prizes from local partners such as Whole Foods, Muumuu Heaven, and Global Village!
Where: Kailua Beach Park, 450 Kawailoa Road, Meet near the Canoe House, Main Parking Lot, East of Buzz’s Restaurant
