Volunteer for Clean the Bay Day
Saturday, June 1, 2013 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm | All Around Virginia Beach
Do your part in helping to keep waterways clean in Virginia by volunteering for the 25th Annual Clean the Bay Day.
Taking place on Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Clean
the Bay Day is an opportunity to get involved in saving the Chesapeake
Bay from harmful and damaging debris that pollute our shorelines and
waterways and kill marine wildlife, especially birds, sea turtles, and
fish. Every year since 1989, thousands of volunteers of all ages have
dedicated their time to clear debris from Virginia’s urban, suburban,
and rural shorelines and waterways. In 2012 alone, approximately 6,800
volunteers from communities throughout the Commonwealth removed more
than 150,000 pounds of debris from nearly 500 miles of streams and
Clean the Bay Day is organized by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation
is honored to take part in coordinating a mass volunteer effort to help
restore the Chesapeake Bay and encourage environmental stewardship.
Get involved! By foot or by boat, gather your groups, friends,
neighbors, co-workers and volunteer for an engaging day and worthwhile
way of helping ‘Save the Bay.’ Take the opportunity to volunteer in a
variety of ways: zone captains, litter pickup, volunteer coordination,
compiling debris data, etc.
