This Saturday, September 15, is Coastal Cleanup Day! Come down to one of our local beaches to help beautify the coastline and protect the marine environment by picking up trash. Bring your own reusable bucket and garden gloves, and be sure to have a hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and water to drink (preferably in a reusable bottle). The hours are 9 a.m. to noon, this Saturday! For more information, click on this link to Heal the Bay.
