There are more ways to clean up our waterways than one. If you’re not participating in the Riverkeeper Shoreline Sweep, then why not consider taking on a fun and rewarding role as a team leader for the Great Lakes? That’s right, you can organize volunteers to head up beach clean-ups. Or, if you don’t want to head up a team, consider volunteering under a team leader.
Be a Great Lakes super hero by become an Adopt-a-Beach team leader. You can schedule your event now at greatlakesadopt.org.
According to the Alliance for the Great Lakes (AGL), “more than 40,000 pounds of litter were picked up from Great Lakes beaches during Adopt-a-Beach 2016.”
You can schedule your cleanup now for Spring Kickoff, which is April 1-Memorial Day. Plus, AGL will hold in-person and online team leader trainings to teach you how to hold the best cleanup ever. Find a training that fits your schedule.
