Take part in International Coastal Cleanup Day and Conservation Day at Euclid Beach September 21st 10am-12pm
Saturday September 21st is going to be an exciting day to volunteer in Euclid Creek Reservation!
Join volunteers for a beach cleanup at Euclid Creek Reservation-Euclid Beach (16301 Lakeshore Boulevard) as we take part in International Coastal Cleanup Day --the world's single largest shoreline cleanup. On Saturday September 21st, thousands of volunteers in partnership with the Ocean Conservancy, Ohio Lake Erie Commission Coastweeks Program, and Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt-a-Beach(TM) program will clean beaches across the world's oceans and along the Great Lakes, including Lake Erie, to raise awareness about the impact of trash on beach and water quality. Volunteers will not only remove debris, they will also record their findings. The data collected by volunteers is used to educate the public, share with local beach authorities and improve our beaches across Ohio, the Great Lakes and the world.
Volunteers will meet in the Euclid Beach picnic shelter at 10am and should wear pants, close-toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather--whatever the weather may be (We clean up rain or shine)! You should also bring bug spray and sunscreen. Children under 10 are required to be accompanied by an adult. Gloves, bags, rakes and trash pickers will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Euclid Beach is located at 16301 Lakeshore Blvd. Cleveland OH 44110.
After the beach cleanup, check out the Cuyahoga Soil and Watershed District's Conservation Day over at Wildwood Park(16975 Lakeshore Blvd.)--just a hop, skip and a jump down Lakeshore or on the lake path through Villa Angela Beach. Following a stream cleanup and the dedication of the Euclid Creek Wetlands project, pizza and refreshments will be provided to all participating volunteers between 11:30am and 12pm.
All beach cleanup volunteers will receive a 1/2 off your meal coupon from Chili Peppers Restaurant (869 East 185th St.) as well as a chance to win tickets to a Jack Johnson Charity Auction Concert in Akron on September 29th.
