Looking for something to do this weekend? Want to get outside and help fight marine debris? Join this year’s International Coastal Cleanup this Saturday, September 17th!

Each year, the International Coastal Cleanup brings people together from around the globe to clean up marine debris in their local communities. Last year, nearly 800,000 volunteers participated from 93 countries, removing over 18 million pounds of debris! The NOAA Marine Debris Program is proud to partner with the Ocean Conservancy to support this effort.

Join us this year—find a location near you and sign up to clean up!
