  1. Alliance of the Great Lakes Adopt-a-Beach Clean Up

    September 16, 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Waukegan Municipal Beach

    Help clean up and quantify collections on the Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt-a-Beach Day! We'll supply gloves, bags and a minimal amount of training and send you on your way. Since 1991, the Alliance has organized the September Adopt-A-Beach™ Event as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, to raise public awareness about beach pollution and to encourage responsible behavior through education and outreach. Volunteers pick up trash, collect recyclables, record what they find, and collect additional data on water quality and beach health. The data collected during the event is valuable in contributing to the passing of improved clean water policy.
