UPDATE: This event has been canceled due to the potential of tropical storm like conditions from Hurricane Florence. We will reschedule our Coastal Cleanup soon!
On Sept. 15 communities around the world are joining forces to help remove trash from the ocean as part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by the Ocean Conservancy. Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant is hosting a cleanup event at the UGA Aquarium from 9 a.m. – noon. The event will start with a presentation on local marine debris research. Afterwards, participants will hike along Grove’s Creek, collecting marine debris and recording information to be compiled in a global report on the amount and type of litter found on beaches. Please come prepared with sun protection, comfortable shoes and a water bottle. Gloves and a bucket will be useful as well.
RSVP by Sept. 13
Ages: Children 10 and up welcome, must be accompanied by an adult
