Time to Adopt A Great Lakes Beach




Join volunteers from around the region in the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ annual Adopt-a-Beach Spring Kickoff to remove winter debris and record findings. Find a nearby location using their online system and sign up to volunteer. Then receive instructions and supplies from a team leader at the event. As an option, bring a reusable container and work gloves to reduce the event’s environmental footprint.


To find cleanups and registration, visit GreatLakesAdopt.org. Sign up for a free training session at GreatLakes.org/aabtraining.
