Keepin' the Sea Free of Debris!

Countdown to the International Coastal Cleanup



A wave of volunteer-action is about to hit your local beach, river, or lake this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the annual International Coastal Cleanup! Are you ready for the ride?

With thousands of sites worldwide, you can dive in and be part of the solution to prevent marine debris from entering our oceans and Great Lakes. To join a cleanup near you, pick a location by visiting Ocean Conservancy’s site map, and tell us where you will be using the hashtag #FreeofDebris.

See you on Saturday!
