MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LOCAL RIVER OR STREAM
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Volunteers have until midnight on Wednesday, May 31, to sign up for Clean the Bay Day. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s (CBF) annual shoreline litter cleanup will be held across Virginia on Saturday, June 3, from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Thousands of volunteers are needed on foot and in boats to help pick up litter and debris along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay and the many rivers and streams across Virginia. Last year, more than 6,000 volunteers participated in Clean the Bay Day at over 260 sites, removing approximately 138,000 pounds of litter and debris along 440 miles of shoreline.
Cleanup sites are available in Richmond, Hampton Roads, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, across Central and Northern Virginia, and at many state parks. To register at a site near you, visit cbf.org/clean, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-800/SAVEBAY.
Major corporate sponsors for Clean the Bay Day include CSX, Northrop-Grumman Corporation, and the Port of Virginia. CBF also received grant support from REI and River Network/Anheuser Bush, as well as additional support from Inside Business.
