“Battle of Lake Erie” Beach Cleanup Scheduled at Perry’s Victory & International

12:00 pm, Thu September 19, 2013 –

What: Ohio Sea Grant, Stone Lab, and the National Park Service are hosting a shoreline cleanup in conjunction with the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ annual September Adopt-a-Beach event, part of the International Coastal Cleanup. Thousands of Adopt-a-Beach volunteers turn out each September to pick up trash along Great Lakes beaches and shorelines, record their findings, and track environmental conditions that contribute to beach health.

When: Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 1:00 pm  

Hosts: Ohio Sea Grant, Stone Lab, and National Park Service. Open to everyone!

Where: Put-in-Bay Village Bathing Beach, near the Perry’s Victory & International Peach Memorial at Put-in-Bay, Ohio

Why: Participants enhance beaches by picking up trash and recording their findings in the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ online Adopt-a-Beach system. Volunteers also conduct water quality sampling and make science-based observations. This information is logged into the online system, made accessible to the public and shared with local beach health officials as well as others working toward improvements. 

More: Beach adoption is easy and open to everyone. Volunteers are encouraged to register online for the cleanup at www.greatlakesadopt.org. To find out more about the Alliance’s Adopt-a-Beach Program, visit www.greatlakes.org/adoptabeach.
