Adopt-a-Beach Shoreline Cleanup

When: Sat., July 20, Sat., Aug. 17 and Sat., Sept. 28 2019

Since 2012, Greater Cleveland Aquarium's nonprofit Splash Fund has hosted an Adopt-a-Beach shoreline cleanup program. Today's cleanup takes place from 10 a.m. to noon at Edgewater Park. The aquarium has partnered with Drink Local, Drink Tap for the event. Someone from the Splash Fund team will be on hand to "advise, assist and provide necessary supplies." Anyone who donates his or her time to help the lake stay great will be rewarded with one free general admission ticket to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. Splash Fund leadership provides gloves, containers and guidance and, at the end of each session, the team records and analyzes the junk they have amassed. Over the course of four mornings, last year's volunteers helped the Splash Fund bag 386 pounds of trash that included bits of foam, glass and 7,686 pieces of plastic. For registration, schedules and other details, see the website. (Niesel)
