Welcome to the 2018 Coastal Cleanup

Tue, 09/11/2018 - 4:00pm

We invite you to join Maine’s largest single volunteer event. The Coastal Cleanup includes volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who clean our coastal shoreline and associated waterways of trash. Each year over a thousand participants clear hundreds of miles of thousands of pounds of trash. What is collected is recorded and this data then becomes part of the international ocean trash index which is compiled by Ocean Conservancy. Your efforts continue to ensure that our coastal waters and habitats remain healthy and trash free.

Location: Boothbay Harbor shoreline

Date: Sunday, Sept. 16

Time: 9 a.m. to noon

Contact: Zachary.b.gordon@maine.gov

Volunteers will meet at the Maine State Aquarium, West Boothbay Harbor and drive out to the designations from there.
